2015 Major Trends in Modern Cancer Research

Posted on Monday, October 26, 2015 by for Extra Credit, Lectures.

On Tuesday, November 10, 2015, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center will host its tenth annual Major Trends in Modern Cancer Research lecture for high school and college students. (Members of the public are also welcome to attend.) The event will take place from 5:30–7:30 PM on the first floor of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Rockefeller Research Laboratories building (430 East 67th Street, between York and First Avenues).

Registration is easy, but finding a seat with a good view isn’t. This event has gotten so popular that the folks at MSKCC needed to set up satellite viewing stations in adjacent conference rooms. Get there a bit early if possible. Light refreshments have traditionally been served before the lectures begin (pizza, chips, fruit, soda, coffee). Single use MetroCards will be made available for any student who needs one to attend.

One point of extra credit will be awarded to all students who attend and complete this assignment for any one of the speakers. (Consult the Extra Credit webpage for more info.) Official attendance is taken by group photo at the end of the event. Place your completed (typed) assignment in my mailbox in the Research Room at any time during the school day on Thursday, November 12.

2015 High School Physics Photo Contest

Posted on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 by for Extra Credit, Juniors, Seniors, Sophomores.

The High School Physics Photo Contest is looking for high school students who can explain physical principles through photography and writing. Photos may be entered in one of two categories and will be judged on the quality of the photo and the accuracy of the written explanation.

  • Natural photos are those that demonstrate physical concepts in everyday situations.
  • Contrived photos are those that are set up to show a particular physical concept or set of related concepts.
  • Photos with multiple images or other computer manipulation will be placed in a separate category.

I will be glad to give anyone advice on photographic composition or copy writing, but Dr. Riemersma will be supervising this competition for Midwood. The deadline for entries is Friday, May 15, 2015, but if you give Dr. R your photo for the first time on this day you will not be allowed to enter. There is a limit of 15 entries per school.

Please read the Student Rules before beginning. You may already have a photo in your archives that could be used for this competition. Look to the past winning entries for inspiration. This event is sponsored by the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT).

           
           
 
           
           

New Horizons mission to Pluto event

Posted on Monday, April 20, 2015 by for Extra Credit, Juniors, Seniors, Sophomores.

On Thursday, May 14, 2015, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) will host a program highlighting NASA’s New Horizons mission — the first-ever mission to the Pluto system and the Kuiper belt. This mission, which will have its closest approach to Pluto in July 2015, will help us understand ice worlds at the edge of our solar system by making the first reconnaissance of the planet Pluto and its moons, and by venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper belt — a relic of solar system formation.

Students will have an opportunity to listen to AMNH’s Director of Astrovisualizations, Carter Emmart, New Horizons Deputy Project Scientist Cathy Olkin, New Horizons Co-Investigator Marc Buie and, Science Operations Team, Tiffany Finley present a dynamic and richly-illustrated overview of the mission and the men and women who make it possible, leaving time for interaction and one-on-one encounters.

This event is being coordinated by Mr. Spergel. He is taking everyone in his AP Physics 1 class, but he has room for a few more students. Contact Mr. Spergel directly if you are interested. This is a field trip, so paperwork needs to be done. The group will depart period 3 on Thursday, May 14, 2015. Extra credit will be awarded to research students who participate and complete the public lecture assignment for any one of the speakers.

World Science Festival needs volunteers

Posted on Thursday, April 16, 2015 by for Extra Credit, Juniors, Seniors.

The World Science Festival is an unprecedented tribute to imagination, ingenuity and inventiveness, taking science out of the laboratory and into the streets, theatres, museums, and public halls of New York City, making the esoteric understandable and the familiar fascinating. The Festival returns this year when hundreds of thousands will gather for a glorious five-day celebration of science, Wednesday, May 27 to Sunday, May 30. The 2015 Festival will feature more than fifty engaging events of all types, including mainstage programs, intimate salons, and youth and family offerings. It all culminates in the Ultimate Science Street Fair, an outdoor extravaganza taking over the area around Washington Square Park and New York University.

Volunteers are the ambassadors of the World Science Festival, serving as the face of the Festival to visitors, welcoming them and being a resource of information about the Festival and its programs. World Science Festival Volunteers support the many production teams that make the wheels of the Festival turn. They are the core upon which the Festival’s success is based.

Volunteers must…

  • Be enthusiastic and have a friendly outgoing personality.
  • Be comfortable working with people of all backgrounds, ages, and levels of familiarity with science.
  • Have great communication skills.
  • Have a passion for learning and sharing knowledge.
  • Be dedicated, commited, reliable and professional.
  • Be flexible and have a sense of humor.

The World Science Festival is a 5 day celebration, but Midwood Science students can volunteer as many days as they want to — with one exception. Thursday, May 28 is the 2015 Midwood High School Science Fair. Since this mandatory event ends sometime between 5:00 and 6:00 PM, it doesn’t leave much time to help out at the Festival on that day.

NYU Poly to hold STEMagination event in April

Posted on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 by for Extra Credit, Juniors, Sophomores.

Polytechnic School of Engineering will be hosting a series of workshops for high school students as part of an all day event called STEMagination on Sunday, April 19, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Each workshop consists of different activities ranging from challenges to competitions. Activities will be fun and engaging, but you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to succeed. By the end of the day, the basic principles of engineering and science will be revealed to you — principles you might not know you already now. You will also be able to speak to admissions office personnel about NYU Poly or college in general.

STEMagination is organized by the NYU Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) in partnership with the White House Initiative for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). This event is open to high school students of all ethnicities. Interested students should register using this Eventbrite web page. Space is limited. Students that provide evidence of participation will receive extra credit.

2014 Brooklyn Frontiers in Science Public Lecture

Posted on Sunday, March 30, 2014 by for Extra Credit, Lectures.

The Brooklyn Subsection of the American Chemical Society and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering present a free lecture to the public.

Professor Jacqueline K. Barton
Signaling through DNA
Brooklyn Frontiers in Science Lecture

Thursday, April 3, 2014
5:30–7:00 PM

Pfizer Auditorium
NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering
5 Metrotech Center
Brooklyn, NY 11201

We think of the DNA double helix as the library of the cell, encoding all that we are. But DNA can also serve as a conduit for the flow of electrons, a medium for signaling. Like a stack of copper pennies, the stack of DNA base pairs is conductive. Recent experiments have shown that DNA can serve as a conduit for the transport of electrons over long molecular distances. We can use this to chemistry design sensitive DNA-based diagnostic sensors. Nature uses this chemistry to find where DNA is damaged and in need of repair — an important mechanism in maintaining our genetic library against the damage associated with aging, cancer, and oxidative stress.

Dr. Jacqueline K. Barton is the Arthur and Marian Hanisch Memorial Professor of Chemistry and Chair of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. She is a native New Yorker. Barton was awarded the A.B. summa cum laude at Barnard College in 1974 and a Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry at Columbia University in 1978 in the laboratory of Stephen J. Lippard. After a postdoctoral fellowship at Bell Laboratories and Yale University with Robert G. Shulman, she became an assistant professor at Hunter College. In 1983, she returned to Columbia University, becoming an professor of chemistry and biological sciences. In the fall of 1989, she joined the faculty at Caltech. In 2009, she began her term as Chair of the Division. Dr. Barton has won many prestigious awards, including the 2010 National Medal of Science from President Obama.

If you are interested in attending, please register here. Midwood Science Research students will receive extra credit if they submit the public lecture assignment to their supervising teacher the day after. An attendance photo will also be taken.

The PhysicsBowl Approaches

Posted on Saturday, March 29, 2014 by for Extra Credit.

The PhysicsBowl is a competition for high school students and schools. Each year, approximately 10,000 students take a 40 question, 45 minute timed, multiple choice test under their school’s supervision. Students compete in Division I (first-year physics students) or Division II (second-year physics students). Students and schools compete against each other by geographical region. (Specialized math and science schools are treated as a separate region.) Awards are given to the top students and schools in a division and region.

The questions for the PhysicsBowl are taken from high school physics classes at all levels (conceptual physics, AP Physics B/C, modern physics, etc.). It is NOT expected that any one student or school will have covered all the topics on the test. Practice exams can be printed out or taken online.

The 2014 PhysicsBowl will be administered at Midwood period 9–10, Wednesday, April 9 in room A320. Mr. Spergel is coordinating this event. Registration instructions will be emailed to all research students. Space is limited. Interested students should register and take the practice tests as soon as possible.

Design a Brain Experiment Competition

Posted on Friday, October 4, 2013 by for Extra Credit, Miscellaneous.

Updated Thursday, October 17, 2013.

The Dana Foundation invites you to participate in its third annual Design a Brain Experiment Competition. The challenge is to design an original human brain-related experiment that will test creative theories on daily brain activity, brain diseases, brain functions and malfunctions. Experiments will be judged on creativity and originality as well as adherence to the scientific method.

This is to be a research proposal — not a completed (or even started) experiment. Entries must be submitted by a supervising teacher. A supervising teacher may not submit more than 5 proposals. Students can enter as individuals or as a group. The competition guidelines use the word “classroom” a few times, but a group entry does not need to be made by a whole class. Proposals must not exceed 4 pages in length (plus 1 page for references or 5 total pages). Supervising teachers must submit entries to competition@dana.org no later than Friday, January 17, 2014. Winners will be announced during Brain Awareness Week March 10–16, 2014.

The Dana Foundation is devoted to promoting an interest in the brain and research in schools across the country. They also sponsor the New York City Regional Brain Bee in February. The Brain Bee is like a spelling bee but instead of spelling words, students are challenged to answer questions about the brain. More info on that competition later.
