The Science National Honor Society of South Dade Senior High School
The purpose of this organization is to:
- Encourage scientific and intellectual thought
- Advance the students’ knowledge of classical and modern science
- Communicate with the scientific community
- Aid the civic community with its comprehension of science
Students are encouraged to participate in community service and, in turn, encourage a dedication to the pursuit of scientific knowledge that benefits all mankind. Within our chapter, we participate in beach clean-ups and teaching opportunities in which student-led groups direct scientific lessons to teach elementary school children.
Along with our voluntary work, the club is a competitive group and actively participates in the annual SECME Olympiad and Festival competitions held at Miami Dade College (North Campus). The students utilize their knowledge in Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Environmental science to compete in brain bowls, construct mouse trap cars, egg drop containers, bottle rockets, and much more!
