T-shirt Design Contest!

Hey everyone!

We’re thrilled to announce that our annual T-shirt design contest has begun! All designs are welcome as long as they are made with CustomInk, contain white text on a red background, and include “Lynbrook Science 2016-2017” on the front. (Pictures of last year’s design can be found below.) The back will include a periodic table filled with the initials of current members, as per tradition, so you will not need to provide a design for it. Designs are due by October 26th to lynbrookscience@gmail.com.

As usual, the winner of the contest will receive a FREE T-shirt!

Best of luck to everyone!

First Meeting Recap, Announcements, and Apologies

Hi everyone!

Thanks for coming to our first meeting of the year today! We hope you enjoyed the chance to try out virtual reality with Google Cardboard yourself! We had an amazing turnout of over 100 members today, so thank you all for your support and love for science :)

While today’s meeting was hopefully entertaining and designed to let you immerse yourself directly in science, after receiving feedback, we will offer more direct guidance in the future in terms of directly helping members with activities, and will also conduct activities in smaller groups to give more personalized attention.

Finally, if you wanted to try out our science club app, created by Creative Game Design Club, you can find it on the Google Play store as “LHS SciCoaster VR”. Keep your eyes peeled for more opportunities to try out and keep the Cardboards!

Remember to sign up for Science Bowl tryouts if you are interested with the form on the website, and see you next week for more exciting demonstrations!

Round 1 (9/21): General Test – This round will be open to everyone, and consists of a 100 question test with questions in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth and Space Science, and Energy to test general knowledge in these areas. This will also be supplemented by a calculation speed round with 30 questions in 5 minutes.

Round 2 (9/23): Subject Tests – This round as of now is open to everyone, but is subject to change based on how many individuals try out. There are 4 subject tests in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth and Space, and individuals must choose 2 tests of 25 questions each to complete in 1 hour total.

Round 3 (9/30): Buzzer Round – 10 to 20 of the top scoring individuals will be chosen to compete in a buzzer-based competition amongst each other. From this pool, 5 individuals will be chosen for Team A and 5 will be chosen for Team B.

Thanks, and please let us know if you have any questions or comments :)
