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.

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

Date: Tuesday October 10, 2017
Location: Revere High School. The bus will depart LEHS at 2:45pm from the field house and will return around 6:00pm.


  • Engineering: Instant Invention: Teams will receive instructions on site, and will build an invention and use it to compete against other teams.

  • Earth Science: Rocks & Minerals Associated with Granite: This event will be comprised of a 25 sample (10 rocks, 15 minerals) identification activity all associated with the igneous rock type known as granite. Preparation topics to address include common minerals found in granite, gemstones associated with granite, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks associated with granite, locations in Massachusetts with significant granite outcrops, and uses of granite. Each sample will be comprised of a two-part question. The first part will be to identify the sample; the second part will address a specific property of that rock or mineral

  • Biology: The Woes of a Traveling Doctor: you will be asked questions about disease risk, prevention and identification. Identification can be based on causes, signs/symptoms and/or treatment. The question styles may include but are not limited to identification, fill in or multiple choice. There will be no more than 50 questions. All questions will come from the Center for Disease Control website at https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/
