Lynbrook Science Bowl SLAC Champions!!!

Hi Everyone!

This past Saturday, Lynbrook’s Science Bowl Team A competed at the 2015 SLAC Regional Competition and beat out The Harker School to earn 1st place and a trip to Washington DC for the 2015 National Science Bowl Competition! It is the first time a team from Lynbrook has advanced to Nationals since 2012, and this is extremely exciting news.

Congratulations to: Pranav Lalgudi, Nithin Buduma (captain), Jeffrey Chang, Richard Liu, Oliver Dong (and Shamrock the Horse :P ) for their amazing performance this past weekend! Feel free to congratulate them on accomplishing this impressive feat.

Tumbling Wing – Jan. 9th Meeting

Hi Everyone!

Yesterday we talked about the technicalities of plane flight and looked at some cool paper airplanes! One of these being the Tumbling Wing, theoretically able to fly forever with the slanted cardboard. Have a look at our president Oliver, with one of his creations.

If you’re interested in making one of these, take a look at this video by the world record holder for the paper airplane distance, John Collins.

See you next week!
