The Science Team participates in a variety of competitions over the course of the year, beginning with the West Suburban Science League meets in October and culminating in the State Olympiad in March.
Every member is provided with a variety of opportunities, and there are always plenty of competitions available for those who do not make it onto any main season teams. Underclassman are also provided with exclusive opportunities to limit competition against more experienced members, and are given priority for B team events.
Practices are held during meetings on Thursday J blocks, or as otherwise scheduled before upcoming competitions. BLB and NSB practices are held after school in room 3211.
Thought the team values competitive success, dedication and effort also play a very important role, especially in selection for the State Olympiad team. Consistent participation is valued higher than a single perfect runoff score.
