Volunteer Science Research Mentors Needed

Huntington High School’s science research program is looking for community residents with a scientific background to serve as volunteer mentors for research students developing projects for regional and national competitions.

Science teacher Lori Kenny, who heads the research program, has been working closely with department colleague and fellow program teacher Dame Forbes, along with district officials to offer an enhanced research experience to high school students.

As more students have made the commitment to engage in science research at the school and in local labs, the need for adult mentors has also grown.

Residents possessing a science background who are interested in mentoring a research program student can contact Mrs. Kenny (lkenny@hufsd.edu) for more information and to arrange a visit to meet with the research teachers and students. “Our intention is to match students and scientists with similar interests,” Kenny said.
