We hope you enjoyed the 2015-2016 year with Lynbrook Science! We are really excited for the upcoming year, and have some exciting events planned for you! A snapshot of the year ahead includes new events like virtual reality, a collaboration with WiSTEM, Lynbrook Science Day, and even a social! Stay tuned for more information, and be sure to attend our first meeting!
Science Bowl tryouts are just around the corner!
The first round will be held in the library next Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 3-4:30 pm. It will be a 200 question multiple choice test that covers a wide range of topics, ranging from Math to Astronomy. The top 30 scorers on this test will be selected to move on to the second round, which will take place on Thursday, Sept. 26, after school in Mrs Alonzo’s room. 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. That round will take place on Oct. 1 after school in Mrs Alonzo’s room. The date for the Team B buzzer tryout will be released at a later date.
If you have any questions about the tryout process, please come to our meeting this Friday and ask! We will be presenting about the various competitions that we have to offer and a big part of that will be Science Bowl.
Lynbrook Science is selling t-shirts! The order form is available here, and the cost will be $15. Those who are on any of the Science Bowl/Olympiad teams are required to get a t-shirt so we can look awesome at events.
Hope you’re enjoying the holidays!
