March 8, 2018 was an exciting day at Bellaire High School!
The National Honor Society members made a charitable impact, while the Science Technology Engineering and Math classes created egg drops to avoid impact as a class project.
The Bellaire chapter of National Honor Society held a blood drive, with community and student volunteers, and a canned food drive, collecting over 100 donations, for the past week. These members have also made donations to create comfort cubes for the Schiffler Cancer Center, containing books, blankets, candy and other consoling items. In addition to these activities, a tutoring program has been started throughout the school. Students in NHS have taken time to explain and reiterate lessons from the classroom to forward the success of their peers.
With six days of hard work, the STEM classes have crafted safety devices for an egg drop. Eggs had to safely land a 7ft 4in drop for their initial project grade, while some ventured for bonus points by landing a 15ft 10in drop from the auditorium balcony. Finalists will go on to soaring heights from the 3rd floor to test their projects from 30ft.
