Congratulations to the 10 Physics Olympiad Semi-Finalists from Lynbrook! They are: Moinak Bhattacharyya, Edward Lee, Andrew Cui, William Lu, Oliver Dong, Sean Meng, Steven Hao, Anthony Peng, Tony Jiang, and Qingqi Zeng.
If you are interested in participating in a new Bio-engineering competition started by UC Berkeley, please visit http://bioehscompetition.com/ for more information.
If you would like to help out with Miller’s Science Fair program, please send an email to email@example.com. This is a very valuable leadership and volunteer experience that doesn’t require a huge time commitment! Science Fair experience is preferable, but not necessarily required.
Here is the powerpoint we showed at today’s meeting. Link
There’s also another program that we didn’t go over today, called the UC Santa Barbara Research Mentorship Program. It’s another very awesome research program in which you’ll acquire a lot of useful skills for the future, including research/lab techniques and experience with interacting with professors.
The program runs from June 23 to August 1, and you’ll be doing a research project, writing a paper and eventually presenting it at a poster session. It is open to current sophomores and juniors.
The director of the program will be at Lynbrook next Thursday, 10/16, during brunch in the library to answer your questions and to handout more information, so if you’re interested, go check it out!
We hope this is helpful! Also, please get your t-shirt money in ASAP!
Here’s what the officers prepared for the meeting that was supposed to happen yesterday. link
Remember to submit t-shirt designs to firstname.lastname@example.org if you haven’t already! Voting will begin Monday night!
We have only received one T-shirt design so far so you guys should keep submitting! Submissions are due Dec 6.
Sign up for Physics Olympiad here if you haven’t already signed up with Tony. Remember to give Tony $5!
Today the officers gave an interesting presentation on Electricity and Magnetism. James did a demonstration of Lenz’s law, showing how a magnet falling through a copper pipe falls much slower than a non-magnetic material because of the induced magnetic field that opposes the motion of the magnet. See the powerpoint here.
On Friday, Tony gave a very informative presentation about the prestigious summer camp RSI. We also announced our annual T-Shirt design contest!
You can check out our powerpoint here to get more information!
We are excited to announce this year’s Science Olympiad Teams A and B! The lists are not organized by score.
