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

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!

Science Bowl Tryouts 2017

Hi everyone!

We are happy to announce Science Bowl tryouts for the 2016-2017 year! They will occur in 3 rounds to determine who is on Team A and Team B (5 individuals each). Dates and details of the tryouts are listed below. Please register using the link below if interested! :)

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 :)

Lynbrook Science 2016-2017 Mailing List

Hi everyone!

The Quest for the OSB

On Saturday February 27, Lynbrook finished as 3rd place finalists in the varsity division as well as 1st place in the JV division at the 2016 Northern California Regional Competition, the Sea Lion Bowl! The competition was held at Stanford University’s School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Studies. This year marks only the third time that our team has competed in recent years, with the team coming in as finalists just last year, so pulling through another season has definitely got Lynbrook Ocean Science Bowl into the fast lane.

Congratulations to: Edward Lee (Captain), Vinay Kukutla (Co-Captain), Jasper Huang, Charlie Huang, and Arnav Amruth for their spectacular accomplishment! This year’s varsity team faced a tough round robin bracket, squaring up many other experienced teams. Nevertheless, the team rallied to earn a position in the quarterfinal elimination rounds. Getting back on their feet to convert a moderate 5th seeding into advance, Lynbrook stomped over Mira Loma to advance to the semis. Unfortunately, the team lost to Albany, the team that ended up winning the competition.

More congratulations to Leslie Pu, Nathan Zhang, Rohan Mehrotra, Susan Zhou, and Isha Mehrotra for closing out the JV bracket with the champion title! Special thanks to Mr. Pallone for coaching and being dedicated to the team! All schools in the JV division were shut down by Lynbrook without a fuss.


Formal language aside, we have some important things we would like to say. For two years in a row, we’ve demonstrated that Lynbrook is and will continue to be a force to be reckoned with. It’s evident that we have the potential to dominate the Sea Lion Bowl and even make it to nationals. With 2 years of experience in the bank, Lynbrook OSB is really climbing to high altitudes.

With that, I’d like to take the opportunity to encourage everyone to embark on the journey with us to conquer the Ocean Sciences Bowl. Our goal is to claim the title, and we’ll work together to achieve that. Now that’s the ultimate quest.
