It’s a new season for Lynbrook Science, and we’re just about to kickstart the year! Our first meeting is tomorrow, September 12, in Room 302. This is Mr. Leung’s room, located at the corner of the Science Building. We’ll be going through the basics of the club, as well as a cool demo.
See you there!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com 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.
