Westwood High School Science Students of the Month of February

Ian Bivins and Allyssea Smith have been chosen as the Science Students of the Month of February.

Allyssea is hard working. She has an after-school job and supports herself, but never turns in her work late or poorly done. I can use her work as a key for my class because she rarely provides answers she has not researched and verified as correct. Allyssea frequently asks questions and tries to dive deeper until she truly understands the concept. She is not satisfied with a surface-level explanation of a concept. Allyssea is also thoughtful and engages well with other students in class.

Ian is a confident and bright presence in science class. He is curious about science and his questions help bring class conversations to a deeper understanding of whatever topic we are discussing. Ian always comes to class with energy and enthusiasm for science. He is not afraid to venture answers to questions and try new ways of doing the experiments in order to find better solutions. He often takes the time to explain content to other students when he finishes early or even during his work time. It is obvious that he enjoys science and is likely to pursue a career in a scientific field.
