LEHS Science Team

search MrBigler.com:


The LEHS Science Team is for students who are interested in science and enjoy opportunities to compete against students from other schools.

The Science Team is a member of the North Shore Science League, which holds monthly science competitions at area high schools. Each competition consists of three separate events on science-related topics, including biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, Earth science, astronomy, current events, and "instant invention". Some events involve building a device or performing an experiment, while others involve answering questions on a science-related topic. The Bulldogs are currently in 21st place out of 26 teams.

The team is open to any student who is interested in science, and new members are welcome any time during the school year.

Attention Members

New members should fill out the Member Information Form.

All members need to fill out and have their parents sign the Permission Slip, which includes permission to travel by school bus to the competitions and to work with power tools under Mr. Bigler's supervision.

Meeting Days

The science team meets on Tuesdays after school in room 304. The times and locations of study/build sessions for specific events are determined by the event captains.
