Local Student Attends Nobel Week In Sweden

  • Tuesday, December 29, 2015

Steven Bernstein, a student from Chattanooga, was one of 24 members of the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS), an international organization dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of students who demonstrate outstanding leadership, scholarship and community commitment, participated in a special study trip to experience Nobel Week in Stockholm, Sweden.

The trip gave students the unique opportunity to witness first-hand the legacy of NSHSS Co-founder and Chairman Claes Nobel’s family. 

In partnership with Stockholm University, this exclusive member-only event for NSHSS high school and college scholars ran from Dec. 7-10. Attendees represented a variety of countries including Austria, India, Mauritius, Sweden and the United States.

NSHSS members attended several activities during the annual Nobel Week in Stockholm, a time in which the 2015 Nobel Prize Ceremonies and numerous other festivities occur, including visits to the Nobel Museum; a tour of Stockholm City Hall; and attendance at the lectures for the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry and Economic Sciences. At a special reception, NSHSS scholars discussed the intricacies of the Prizes with the president of The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and members of the selection committees for the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry and Literature.

“James Lewis and I founded NSHSS with the vision that one day our scholars will become the world’s next Nobel Laureates. There is a special place in my heart for inspiring young people to pursue greatness and to have a positive impact on humanitarian causes,” said Mr. Nobel, chairman of NSHSS and senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes.
