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 16th place out of 27 teams.

Besides the League, there are other science-related competitions and activities throughout the school year that team members may participate in, depending on their availability and interest.

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.

Check out the proposed T-shirt design.

  • Circuits: [forum] Build a circuit for taking a multiple choice test. The circuit must indicate correct answers for each question. Seven of the questions are given in advance; the other two questions will be provided at the meet. Circuit boards will be tested, droped from a height of 2 m and tested again.


  • Materials Science: [forum] This is a pencil-and-paper event with 50 fill-in-the-blank questions on the subject of materials science, including metallurgy, composite materials, ceramics engineering, nanotechnology and semiconductors. A word bank will be provided. All questions will be taken from sections 1-4 of http://mrmaloney.ipage.com/nssl/events/2013-2014/1314_6_apr_MatSci.pdf plus any page that is linked directly from one of those sections.


  • Marine Organisms: [forum] This is a pencil-and-paper event. Teams will shown 30 images of common marine organisms found off the coast of New England. Teams will have 90 seconds to answer each of the two questions associated with each image. Some topics will include the name, trophic level, predator-prey relationships, biome/ecosystem (nektonic, intertidal, coastal, photic etc.), interaction with humans, life cycle, species classification (keystone, exotic, endangered, etc.), and adaptations for survival. Organisms may include whales/dolphins, echinoderms, mollusks, seals, algae, arthropods, dinoflagellates, birds (sea and shore only), fish, sharks/rays, cnidarians, and worms.
