Academy of Biomedical Science

Students in Human Body Systems are analyzing sets of bones from three missing persons in an effort to identify these individuals. In order to do so, measurements of the skull, pelvis and long bones are required to determine the sex, age, height and eithnic background of the skeletons. Students distance learning are live in a Google Meet and are contributing to the data collection and navigation of anatomical parts.

Note: The "bones" are plastic and are sanitized before and after each use.

News from National Honor Society

October, 2020


The National Honor Society Faculty Selection Committee met recently to discuss changes to service hour requirements for our students. The changes below will be in effect for the 2020-21 school year. For the 2021-22 school year, hours requirements may change (increasing back toward traditional guidelines) when the Covid restrictions are lifted.


Attention Juniors:

In light of Covid restrictions, juniors who wish to apply for NHS membership this winter must show a minimum of 10 hours of documented community service. This number, reduced from the previous requirement of 50 hours, was chosen because of the timing of the Covid quarantine and all the service opportunities that have not “run” since March.

Juniors whose cumulative GPA meets the minimum requirement of 3.6 will be invited to apply for NHS membership shortly after first semester ends.


Attention inducted members:

Current senior members of NHS will not have to accumulate any additional service hours. Current senior NHS members will be required to participate in the majority of chapter service activities, but will not have to demonstrate any additional service hours in their senior year. We do encourage members to continue to find ways to serve individually, and members who choose to continue individual service may submit their hours to Mrs. Stormont for record keeping.


Any questions may be directed to NHS advisor Mrs. Stormont at maggie.stromont@scituateschooolsri.net.
