Mentoring Program Encourages Interest in Science

Twenty-six members from the Babylon High School chapter of the Science National Honor Society paid a visit to Babylon Memorial Grade School as part of a science awareness mentoring program to assist sixth-grade students with projects they have been working on for their upcoming science fair.
The program, which was organized by club advisers Melissa Callahan and Heather Hosek, offers high school students the opportunity to share their experiences and expertise, while putting Babylon’s younger science students on the path to successful studies.
“The high school students shared their expertise on the construction of data tables, graphs and experimental design, while the sixth-grade students received new ideas and exposure to possible achievements that they can reach in their future,” said Hosek, a science teacher at Babylon Memorial Grade School.
