Juniors : Information to keep you informed

Posted on Saturday, September 13, 2014 by for Juniors.

I sent every junior in Science Research a long email this evening using MailChimp. If you never got it, please contact me. There are issues with some email services (namely AOL). Click the icon to the right to access a copy of the message if yours was lost or stolen.

Maker Faire needs volunteers

Posted on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 by for Extra Credit, Juniors, Seniors, Sophomores.

Maker Faire has been described as carnival sideshow meets science fair, with robots, engineers, rockets, computer geekery and body paint. Imagine, you can get all that for FREE by volunteering. Just four hours gets you a day pass, eight hours gets you in for the weekend. Learn to solder, pick locks, and screen print on fabric. See the Life-Sized Mousetrap, Coke Zero and Mentos show, and 3D printer village. Dodge Cupcake Cars. Buy a Utility Kilt.

Started in San Mateo, California in 2006, Maker Faire is the premier event for grassroots American innovation. As the World’s Largest DIY festival, this two-day family friendly Faire has something for everyone — a showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness and a celebration of the Maker mindset. This year’s Maker Faire will be held at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing, Queens Saturday and Sunday, September 20 and 21, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

You can learn about all your volunteering options here. (Volunteers are called "Travelers" at Maker Faire.) Midwood Science students who volunteer will, of course, receive extra credit. Contact Mr. Elert if you have any questions about Maker Faire in the Research class.

 

Electrochemical Devices Workshop

Posted on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 by for Juniors, Seniors, Sophomores.

Dr. Sophia Suarez in the Physics Department at Brooklyn College will be conducting a two-day workshop for high school students on Electrochemical Devices: Research, Applications, and Energy on Tuesday, July 1 and Wednesday, July 2, 2014. At the workshop, you will learn how to build supercapacitors, fuel cells, and batteries. This workshop is open to current sophomores and juniors and graduating seniors. Contact any one of the research teachers if you would like to join Dr. Suarez and her team. Lunch will be provided both days. Extra credit cannot be awarded since this event takes place outside of the regular school year.

Exit Meetings

Posted on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 by for Juniors, Seniors.

Seniors and Juniors. I sent you all an email today about exit meetings, the World Science Festival, and other stuff. If you did not receive it check your spam folder. Everyone should have my name stored in their contacts/address book to prevent this kind of thing. If you still cannot find a message from me, please send me an email stating this. Not all email services are kind to email blasts. For your reading enjoyment, here are the email messages as text files. Enjoy!

A message to all juniors

Posted on Thursday, May 1, 2014 by for Juniors.

Juniors,

There are 3 important dealines approaching …

  • Submit the final draft of your NYCSEF Research Plan to your supervising teacher before he or she leaves the building on Friday, May 2, 2014.
  • Submit the first draft of your PowerPoint Presentation by email to Mr. Elert before midnight Sunday, May 4, 2014. (PowerPoints only. No Open Office, Google Docs, Apple Keynote, or Prezi files.) Submit the final draft the same way before midnight Sunday, May 11, 2014.

You also need to check the calendar. Everyone must see their supervising teacher next week. (I am having my juniors schedule themselves. See me on Wednesday, May 7 or Thursday, May 8, period 4, 7, 8, or 9 — your choice.) Topics for discussion include …

  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Lab logs for April (if you forgot to bring them to the last meeting)
  • 1.05 (Your supervising teacher has records of your lab logs and a confirmation email. The only new paperwork you need is a completed course change form.)

Some other important days …

Application for Advanced Science Research (a.k.a. 1.05)

Posted on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 by for Juniors, Seniors.

pdf icon

All juniors and seniors with a currently active research placement who would like to apply for a 1.05 weighted research course (Advanced Science Research) must fill out, print, sign, and present this form to their supervising teacher on or before Friday, December 6, 2013. Bring your lab log at this time as well.

Special note just for the juniors (and one senior). A placement is not official until your mentor has contacted me saying you have been accepted to work in their lab. It should also state the date you began working there. Some of you have done this and some of you haven’t. The official record of this is kept in the Google Docs spreadsheet called "shared copy of mentors". You were all sent an invitation to this spreadsheet in October. View it and see your status. If you see a date next to your mentor’s name, you’re OK. If not, contact them immediately and ask them to contact me at their earliest convenience.
