SNHS Welcomes New Members

SNHS Welcomes New Members

Ladue’s Science National Honor Society (SNHS) chapter had their first meeting of the semester on Jan. 20. Those who applied before Dec. 22 were able to have a chance to be accepted.

With COVID last year, many sophomores and juniors had the chance and were able to join this semester. At the first meeting on Jan. 20, the officers went over protocols and introduced the semester points sheet to new members. SNHS meet biweekly on Tuesdays in Dr. Weltig’s room after school. Meetings usually last 30-45 minutes.

“In the [second] meeting, we watched a video about optical illusions and how they work,” new member and sophomore Tanvi Genti said, “It was a lot of fun and interesting to learn about.”

Each meeting, members get their semester points sheet signed by an SNHS officer. Points can also be earned through volunteering such as participating in Science Olympiad or helping teachers grade science work. 

“I’m looking forward to the various volunteering opportunities that’ll be available throughout this semester,” Genti said. “And learning more things about different scientific things I never knew about before.”

Though the deadline for joining SNHS this semester has passed, interested students can apply for it next year. People who have an interest in volunteering or anything related to science are recommended to apply.

“I’d definitely recommend and encourage people to join SNHS in the future too if they like science,” Genti said.
