NNHS Science Trip

  • In past years, NNHS has organized an annual ecology trip to Nicaragua, where students assist with ongoing ecology research projects and participate in sustainability-focused scientific investigations.  Although the area of travel for this trip is not currently affected by Nicaragua's political situation, NNHS takes students' safety very seriously and will not be sending students to Nicaragua this year.

    We are currently investigating alternative science travel programs which can be offered in the 2018-19 school year, which would be offered for juniors and seniors who have taken or are currently taking biology.  We will update this website and send emails to eligible students and their parents once more information becomes available.

    There are significant start-up costs involved in creating a new NNHS international travel program.  If you would like to assist with funding for these costs, please email Global Programs Manager Samantha Mandel at mandels@newton.k12.ma.us.
