NSHS Science Team Mentors Middle-School Students

The Newton South HS Science Team — led by captains Frank Liu, David Kim, and Lucy Dutton — is starting an online mentorship program to introduce middle-school students to high-school science. Middle-school students will benefit by filling in gaps in their curriculum during the shutdown while also interacting with high-school students. Students can ask questions about science and high school and get to know Science Team members. The program aims to be introductory and preparatory, addressing the basics of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, and related topics. It is designed mainly for students who will be in Grade 9 at Newton high schools in the fall, but it’s open to anyone interested in science. Weekly sessions will be scheduled based on availability and demand. Interested parents should fill out this form to express interest and learn more.
