Hereford High has been part of the Science National Honor Society since 2004. Our chapter 224 is the second-oldest in Maryland, and in a short time its members have distinguished themselves as leaders and high achievers at the local, collegiate and national levels.

In addition to weekly meetings, in which members present interesting and/or new findings in various fields of science, SNHS members are also involved in various extracurricular activities that promote science in the community:

  • SNHS members serve as judges for the STEM fairs taking place at the feeder elementary schools in the spring;

• SNHS officers invite researchers and professors from local universities and laboratories to share their research;

• Several members have conducted original research using classroom cosmic ray muon detectors, or a 2.5-meter radio telescope stationed at Johns Hopkins U

• Some members have designed and executed several “community science” presentations to younger students in science.
