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 19th place out of 23 teams.

New Members

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

New members should fill out the Member Information Form 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).

Next Competition

Date: Tuesday November 15, 2016
Location: Woburn Memorial High School. The bus will depart LEHS at 3:00pm from the field house and will return between about 6:00 and 6:30pm.

October Events:

  • Physics/Engineering: Elastic Energy Helo-Hover Craft: Build an elastic potential energy driven helicopter/hover craft capable of taking off and landing in a 3-meter by 3-meter square while staying airborne for the longest period of time. Event Captain: Meghan Turner

  • Biology: Mammals of New england: At each of thirty stations you will examine skins, skulls, scat or tracks and be asked to identify the mammal by its common name and answer a second question about its trophic level, importance to its ecosystem, habitat, predators and prey. Event Captain: Valerie Vong

  • Chemistry: The Eight-Solution Problem: This event is a chemistry logic puzzle. You will be given eight known solutions and eight unknown solutions, each of which is identical with one of the known solutions. Teams must identify each of the unknown solutions and predict the products and write balanced chemical equations for every combination of the known solutions. (If no reaction would occur, you must explicitly say so.)
