Ocean Science Bowl Tryouts!

Thank you for joining us for a spooky Halloween meeting this week! We hope you had fun using your scientific skills to figure out what was inside all of the paper bags.

We’re happy to announce that Ocean Science Bowl tryouts will happen this coming week! They will take place on Friday Nov. 6, 3-4pm in Mr. Pallone’s room (room 307). We urge you all to try out because marine biology is tons of fun. Please sign up on this form by Wednesday night if you wish to participate: https://goo.gl/n6qcrP

Science Bowl Tryouts!

Hi all,

Thank you for joining us for an exciting meeting last week where we talked about science bowl and played a fun trivia game on kahoot!

Science bowl tryouts are just around the corner. The first round, open to all students, will take place in the cafeteria this Friday, Oct. 16, from 3:00-4:30pm. It will be a 150 question multiple choice test that covers a wide range of topics, from Math to Astronomy. The top 20 scorers will be announced on Tuesday on Mr. Leung’s door, and will proceed to a second buzzer round. From there, the top 10 scorers will move on to the final round of elimination, in which the five members of Science Bowl Team A will be decided. The dates and times for the second and third round will be released at a later date.

Please sign up for the first round on this google form: http://goo.gl/forms/8Zm8fOm86l

If you have any questions about the tryout process, feel free to email lynbrookscience (snail thing) gmail.com or ask any of the officers in person. Good luck to all!

First Meeting on 9/18!

Hi all!

Lynbrook Science Club will have its first meeting on 9/18 in Mr. Leung’s room (room 302) during lunch!

We’re excited to start this year and have plenty of things in store for you (even the first meeting!).

See you there!

Science Bowl Open Tourney on 5/23

Hi all!

Lynbrook will host an open science bowl tournament on Saturday, 5/23! The idea is to give a real competition experience to people who didn’t get to participate in the official regional competition (such as SLAC). As such, it will only be open to people who have not participated in official competition before. We strongly encourage any existing “Team B” or “junior varsity” teams at your school to attend and gain some valuable competition experience! On the other hand, if you just want to come to have fun, you can also spontaneously form your own team with your friends.

The tourney will be on 5/23, 9am to around 1pm at Lynbrook High School. The link to register can be found here. Note that there will be a limit of 5 members per team and 3 teams per school. Please register by Thursday 5/21 at the latest. We will be releasing an official schedule and map on Friday 5/22.

If you have any questions, please email us at lynbrookscience (at) gmail.com.

Hope to see you all there for a morning of fun science and friendly competition!

Chemistry Olympiad Results!

Congratulations to Nithin Buduma and Jeffrey Chang for being finalists in the 2015 USA National Chemistry Olympiad! In addition to placing 1st and 2nd respectively at the school level, they also placed in the top 16 out of all participants from 26 schools in the Santa Clara Valley region!

Thank you to all the participants this year and we hope to see more try out in the future. See you all tomorrow!
