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 24 teams.

New and Returning 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 and returning 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

Location: Danvers High School. The bus will depart LEHS at 3:00pm from the field house and will return between about 6:00 and 6:30pm.

February Events:

  • Physics: Joy of Music: Teams have to build and play a song on two musical instruments of different types (strings, wind, percussion) from scratch (no kits or commercial parts, other than strings). Each instrument must have a range of at least 1 octave. Teams must also answer questions about the physics of musical instruments.

  • Anatomy & Physiology: Broken Hearts: 50 questions about the structure and function of the human heart; common heart conditions that affect infants, teens and adults; types of tests that can be performed to assess proper heart function; risk factors; how to live a life that promotes a healthy heart.

  • Miscellaneous: Science in the News: 50 questions (with a word bank) about science stories in the news. Questions will be taken from Discover Magazine's 100 Top Science Stories of 2016, plus the Science sections of the New York Times from January 17, January 24, and January 31, 2017.
