Would you like to challenge yourself? Apply academic knowledge outside of the classroom? Make new friends? Go on fieldtrips? Study outdoors? Earn a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) endorsement on your diploma?

If so, talk to Mr. Thomas or your science teacher about joining any of the Science and Engineering Club programs listed below!

Science Olympiad Team
Science Olympiad is a national competition in which students first participate in the Maine State meet at the end of March and the winning team represents Maine at Nationals. Working in teams of 2, students complete various science and engineering challenges including written tests, experimental design activities, and engineering projects. The tournaments are rigorous and fun and require students to prepare for the March meet throughout the school year. BAHS has participated in the Science Olympiad program since 2011. The list of events are on the Science Olympiad Team page.

Ocean Science Bowl Team
The National Ocean Sciences Bowl® (NOSB) is a nationally recognized and highly acclaimed high school academic competition using student buzzers. Working on a team of 4-5, students learn ocean-related topics in physics, chemistry, biology, geology, geography, social science, technology, and policy. Each year in February, 25 regional competitions are held across the U.S., with the winner from each region advancing to the national Finals Competition. The regional competition for students from Maine and New Hampshire is the Nor’Easter Bowl, which will be held this year at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH.

Envirothon is a state- and nation-wide environmental competition where high school students test their knowledge of natural resources and current environmental issues. Teams consisting of 3-5 students compete first at a regional level, answering questions and solving hands-on problems at five stations: Wildlife, Water/Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, and a Current Natural Resource Issue. The annual state competition occurs in late April or early May. Students are asked to identify trees, insects, skulls, hides, scat, work  in a soil pit, and use a compass, among other skills.
