LEHS Science Team

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 17th place out of 23 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.

If you are interested in joining the team, stop by or talk to Mr. Bigler (click to reveal email address) or team captain Marzia Maliha.

December Events:

  • Engineering: Egg Thrower/Catcher: build two devices, one that can launch an egg and the other that can catch it. The catcher has maximum dimensions 1 m × 1 m × 1 m prior to launch (but can be extended/unfolded/etc.). Teams have 1 minute setup and 1 minute to launch & catch two eggs.

  • Environmental Science: Water Resources: (pencil & paper event) Answer questions about Groundwater and Freshwater Sources, the California Drought (Western US), Drinking Water Treatment, Wastewater Treatment, Stormwater Runoff, Watersheds, and the Flint Water Crisis.

  • Biology: Eggs: (pencil & paper event) Answer questions about eggs, including composition and structure, egg production, the purpose of an egg, the direction of eggs (polarity and axis determination), how germ line genetic material is determined, and the history of eggs.
