    RASPBERRY PI BIRTHDAY JAM

    Raspberry Pi Birthday Jam is for middle and high school student – Friday, March 1st, 4:30-8:00 in the Cal High Library. The Raspberry Pi is a powerful, yet inexpensive, micro-computer that is the perfect tool for an introduction to hardware and physical computing. At this event, we will work hands-on with various sensors, LEDs, and other components, and use programming to control our circuits.  This event will challenge students to learn more about the Raspberry Pi, and will give students an opportunity to show how versatile and powerful it can be. We will focus on digital making projects and challenges in order to expose students to this growing field in computer science.  (Raser)

    PHYSICS CLUB

    Physics Enthusiasts (and people who seek to improve their college apps),Congrats to all that took the F= MA contest! Those results should be available this week. It is time for another easier (and more fun) physics test called the PhysicsBowl.  For those of you unfamiliar: Each year, approximately 10,000 students take a 40-question, 45-minute timed, multiple-choice test under their school’s supervision. The 2019 exam will be given between March 27 and April 12, 2019. Exam questions are based on topics and concepts covered in a typical high school physics course. This exam has topics ranging from Newtonian physics to electricity and magnetism. DON’T FEAR. Some questions will be different based on whether it is your first year in a physics class or not!!! For division 1 (first-year students) the electricity and magnetism questions tend to be theory-based rather than calculations.  Therefore, a comprehensive overview of those topics will be very helpful. For division 2(students with more physics experience) the non-Newtonian questions are more complex and tend to have more calculations. For both divisions, from our experience, the key is conceptual understanding.  These tests assume you have only high school physics knowledge but are able to apply Newton’s Laws or E&M laws to different situations so the time limit is not as bad as it looks. If you would like the opportunity to win prizes for yourself or help win Glory for Cal, Sign up!! The test will be on a day between March 27th and April 12th (based on when it is most convenient for the people signing up) after school. Sign up in T5, the registration cost is $6.00. The deadline is Monday, February 25st. (Sater)
