Substantial Satisfaction At Sportive Science Night

The joyous screams of children and the constant laughter of the National Honor Society volunteers displayed the entertainment of the Lower School Family Science Night. This event took place at Barrett Hall on the night of February 22, and its main purpose is to teach young Spartans about the world of science. 


Science Night proved to be greatly beneficial for both the volunteers and the Lower School children. With the help of administrators and the National Honor Society, this event was able to yield great success.


Science Night was full of many festive activities that provided many stimulating activities that the kids were encouraged to participate in. Upon completion, the children received stickers that served as a reward for their effort. 


The Lower School students were pleased by how the activities were organized. When I asked Alex Irvine, an Information Technology Professional and father, about how his child felt about their experience, he confirmed that “he loved it.”


Meanwhile, NHS volunteers were able to witness their hard work come to fruition. This brought great fulfillment to the high schoolers as kids actively engaged in learning elastic forces, microscopes, model design, etc. 


Joshua Xie, an NHS member in the class of 2025, shared his contentment with volunteering by stating, “Working at Science Night was a great time. It was a great experience to do fun activities with the kids and try to teach them something at the same time.”


As a member of the National Honor Society, I also volunteered during Science Night. I found that it was satisfying to see how delighted the children were when I guided them during their microscope activity.


The entire student body connected over their love for science. “I was happy to see my first-grade buddy have a wonderful time at Science Night. It had an overall positive impact on the National Honor Society and the children,” says Westbrook Adams, an NHS member in the class of 2024. 


This event was a wonderful way of allowing NHS to contribute to the younger community of Athens Academy. I cannot wait to meet new faces and contribute to the happiness of children in next year’s Science Night.
