Western Suburban Science League
The current captain is Zachary Rosenof.
The Western Suburban Science League (WSSL) is a competition open to teams from schools in Eastern Massachusetts. The contest is similar to Science Olympiad in format, but is more informal and takes place once a month from October to February. The meets are hosted by the competing schools. Typically there are three or four events based on Science Olympiad events or trial events at each meet. The team with the highest overall score wins the season. The league coordinator is Michael Griffin.
The Newton North Science Team generally recommends that people new to the team participate in WSSL because it requires the smallest time commitment, is low key, and has the most slots available.
