United States Chemistry Olympiad

Three members of the Ramapo Chemistry Team participated in the NJ regional qualifying round of the United States Chemistry Olympiad on Saturday, March 12th.   Top scoring students from this exam will be invited to participate in the national exam in April. 

The U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad is a multi-tiered competition designed to stimulate and promote achievement in high school chemistry. It is sponsored by the American Chemical Society. Each year, four students are chosen to represent the USA in the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), which is hosted every year in July in one of the participating countries.  Congratulations to Mrs. Fan and team members, Lucas Baiata, Luke Jannazzo, and Kirk Tsocanos, for their commitment to preparing for this competition.

Marine Systems & Oceanography Course Makes Plankton


To demonstrate their understanding of life in the water column from the perspective of plankton, Marine Systems students at Ramapo High School designed and created their own "plankton" with household supplies.  The plankton had to be at least 50% submerged in the water column instead of floating or sinking to model plankton that would survive well in the ocean.  Shown here are Po Seniors Melina Tsapatsaris, Siena Zisa, Sydney Samuel, and Mat Niemiec with some of their winning plankton species.

Indian Hills UPSMR

The University Program Science, Medicine & Research (UPSMR) Freshmen wrapped up a donation drive for two local animal rescue organizations, RBARI & Wildlife Freedom. Students raised over $500 in supplies and donations for the animal rescues in response to the needs of rescue organizations to support animal services based solely on donations after making career connections with the groups earlier in the school year.
