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 16th place out of 22 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 14, 2017
Location: Danvers High School. The bus will depart LEHS at 3:00pm from the field house and will return around 6:30pm. There will be an ice cream social after the meet.

Events:

  • Biology: Water Birds of New England: pencil and paper event with 50 slides that may contain images of birds, descriptions of behaviors, habitats or natural history, or songs and calls. The birds may include ducks, geese, swans, shorebirds, gulls, terns, plovers, sandpipers, cranes, rails, herons, egrets, bitterns, cormorants, darters, grebes, and loons.

  • Physics/Engineering: Water Bottle Flipper: Teams will build a device that can reliably flip a water bottle so that it lands either on its base or its cap.

  • Chemistry: Fossil Fuels: pencil & paper event with 30 questions about the formation of fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas, methyl hydrates), where the resources are found, how they are extracted (open pit/underground/mountaintop mining, fracking, drilling, etc.), and environmental impacts with respect to extracting the resource. Note: the efficiency and stoichiometry questions will be calculation questions.
