Bob Jones students engage in arts, science for Earth Week

MADISON – Students found a deeper appreciation of science in real life with fun activities and facts during Earth Week, sponsored by National Science Honor Society at Bob Jones High School.

“Earth Week aims to portray science through a broad variety of avenues,” Bob Jones Principal Sylvia Lambert said. “By emphasizing the critical role science plays in every aspect of society, the honor society hoped to inspire students to connect topics learned in the classroom to daily decisions, promoting self-reflection and change.”

Students participated in a different daily ventures during April 16-20, leading up to Earth Day on April 22. The agenda included a literature contest, encoded quote, historical timeline and repurposed art display. Students also could pursue a literature contest, history timeline and email trivia and origami butterflies for environmentalism, Bob Jones Assistant Principal of Instruction Amy Thaxton said.

The week opened on April 16 with the day’s theme of general sciences, which included an art contest. For mathematics day, students created statistical posters and deciphered the Base 5 message.

Shantanu Kadam, President of Science National Honor Society, conceived the idea of Earth Week. “The weeklong campaign intended to raise environmental awareness and participation within the student body,” Kadam said. The diverse and creative culture of Bob Jones inspired the weeklong event.

“I’ve gotten to work with people who I never even knew went to Bob Jones — people who’ve blown my mind in every aspect,” Kadam said. “It’s been an incredible experience.”

Kadam said Earth Week “portrayed science through a broad variety of avenues. By emphasizing the critical role science plays in every aspect of society, the honor society hoped to inspire students to connect topics learned in the classroom to daily decisions, promoting self-reflection and change.”

Earth Day was founded 20 years ago after ecological activism led to the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species acts. Earth Day has spread around the world, activating 200 million people in 141 countries.
