On March 9, 2017, Marlboro High School’s Science League participated in a competition at Freehold Boro High School. Participants from MHS, Freehold Boro High School, Freehold Township High School, Holmdel High School, and Colts Neck High School put their brains to the test to defeat their fellow competitors.

Science League, which is advised by Ms. Marrucca, is one of the many clubs that MHS offers. Students who take interest in science courses, specifically Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and/or Environmental Science, are welcome to take part. Joining the club gives members the chance to showcase their knowledge of the various science subjects, obtain more knowledge in these areas of study, and meet people with similar interests. Practice tests are given at meetings to prepare for run-off exams, which help select four people for each subject to compete in the upcoming competition. There are four competitions each school year in January, February, March, and April. After taking a test, the participants’ scores for each subject are tallied up, and the results are announced.

The competition at Freehold Boro was the third competition of the 2016-2017 school year, in which MHS placed in every category. After all the tests were scored, Marlboro ranked first in Environmental Science, first in Physics C, tied for first in Biology 2, tied for first in Physics 1, second in Biology 1, third in Chemistry 1, third in Chemistry 2, and third in Physics 2. This is a big improvement from February’s competition in which Marlboro only placed in Biology 1, Chemistry 2, and Physics C.

There is still one competition left of the 2016-2017 school year in April, and Marlboro will definitely go far. For questions about Science League and how to join, visit Ms. Marrucca in room D201.
