WYSE | HS
WYSE members welcome freshmen to Sycamore High School. We encourage you to become actively involved in the many activities available at the high School. WYSE is a club designed to promote activities related to science and the technological world. Some of our activities in the past have been:
- Attending Physics Day at Great America amusement park.
- Hosting demonstrations and guest speakers dealing with various areas of science or math.
- Competing with other schools in the WYSE Academic Challenge.
The WYSE Academic Challenge is a competitive series of tests created and administered by Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering and offered to high school students in Illinois and Missouri. The tests are now offered by more than 50 community colleges and universities and are designed to present a challenge to the brightest students. Test material is drawn from senior high school and freshman level college curricula. Written by teams of college and university faculty, subjects include biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering graphics, English, mathematics, and physics. In the past, our team has advanced all the way to the State competition; we took fifth in State in 2004.
