What do you know about the ongoing Global Water Crisis?  
Fast facts:
1. More than 800 million people lack basic drinking water access
2. 6x the population of the US lives without a household water connection
3. More people die from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war

This spring, the Green Team is partnering with Gravity Water, a non-profit dedicated to increasing global clean water access for schools through rainwater harvesting, storage, and filtration systems. We are running a fundraiser campaign to build clean water systems for students at the Tả Củ Tỷ 2 Primary and Secondary School in Bắc Hà, Vietnam. For just $8, you can provide a child with safe drinking water! Totally worth it.

Learn how you can contribute to the campaign HERE!

Unraveling the Mysteries of the Standard Model with Particle Physics Lecture by Christian Bauer
What: Physics LectureWhen: Friday, February 5, 2021Time: 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time
About: Three of the 4 fundamental forces (all except gravity) are explained incredibly well by a beautiful theory called the Standard Model. Despite its great success, the Standard Model fails to explain several important phenomena, such as the existence of dark matter and the fact that we observe no anti-particles in our everyday lives. What’s wrong?

Short bio: Christian Bauer is a Senior scientist and the head of the Theory Group in the Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He has recently been working on ways to use Quantum Computing to solve difficult computational problems in particle physics.

Here is an update from the BHS Supply Center: 
We are open every Tuesday from 1:30 – 3:30 to distribute textbooks, novels, readers, materials, or whatever. This is ongoing until the end of the year. At the first week of each term we will add an additional distribution day on a Thursday. The Library Team (Ms. Rosenkrantz, Ms. Irby, and Ms. Fitzhugh) will also be open in the same location on Thursdays to hand out library books and the like. Remember to visit the BHS Library catalog and place hold there first in order to start the process. 

The big change is that we are moving INSIDE! We will be set up at the glass doors of the breezeway. Students in cars can park on Milvia and walk to the doors, and students on foot or on bikes can just come straight to the doors.  
Can’t make it? Request a TASK RUNNER.  

Contact the Library Team if you have any questions.


SATISFY YOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS WHILE HELPING BERKELEY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!

For high schoolers, there are 2 primary pathways into Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV), which is a program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund:

1. Students who can give at least an hour every week could join Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV) as a “Distance Learning Volunteer.” These volunteers complete BSV’s onboarding training and then get matched with a BUSD Host Teacher (at the grade level and subject area of their choosing). They support online – in whole group Zooms, in small groups, or even in 1:1 breakouts. They might also help their Host Teacher review students’ asynchronous work. The distance learning volunteer application is HERE and we have several orientations in January.

2. Students who have time every once in a while can join Berkeley Schools Volunteer’s COVID-response email list to get notified about and sign up for other district-wide projects. Some projects are ongoing, like staffing the Ed Hub every Tues/Thurs afternoon (BUSD’s central distribution site for tech and learning tools) or joining BSV’s Tech Support team (to answer student and family tech questions asynchronously). BSV also has periodic one-time events like assembling science kits, or restoring a school garden. COVID-response volunteers receive about 2 emails each month with ongoing BUSD volunteer opportunities.
Students can sign up to join BSV’s COVID-response email list HERE.
We hope many of you can join us on the front lines of BUSD’s COVID-response during this very difficult year.
Please reach out with any questions: duffyross@berkeley.net 


Resources* for Processing the Violence & News
The easiest way to reflect upon your own understanding of current events and other trauma is to write about it or talk about it. If you would like more guidance, then consider some of these resources:
Youth Speaks Writing Workshops“Youth Speaks will always show up and hold space for our young people. We don’t know what may happen in the next week, but we will be here. Ready to write. Ready to share and continually creating a safer space for you.” Wednesdays 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm PT for 13 – 19-year-olds only.
Greater Good Science Center Magazine and other articles to understand rising emotions within yourself as well as articles on growing your anti racist tools. 
Common Sense Media – Talking to Kids about Violence in the U.S. CapitolThis is an article with questions arranged by age range on how to process the events. In addition, there are numerous other resources available
Envolve – Activities for this momentScott Backovich offers simple ideas for taking care of yourself and your community.

My name is Samuel Alber and I’m a student at UC Berkeley. My colleague Tavisha Thapar and I are creating a panel event called SCOPE, which aims to help high school students discover their academic interests and spark their curiosities. It is often difficult for high school students to gauge what they’re interested in since there are too many fields and subfields for high school to cover in-depth. We hope to mitigate that by providing a place for students to listen to a panel of leading experts from a variety of fields. The event will be on Saturday, February 6th from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. over Zoom. Each professor will give a quick presentation on their research and then take questions from the audience. Our panel will consist of professors Robert Tjian (Biochemistry), Josh Bloom (Astrophysics), David Card (Economics), Karina Palau (Comparative Literature), and Jill Berrick (Social Welfare).  Would it be possible for Berkeley High School to publicize this event to its students? We have attached a flyer to this email. The link for sign-ups is tinyurl.com/SCOPE-signup
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you,
Samuel Alber

My name is Samuel Alber and I’m a student at UC Berkeley. My colleague Tavisha Thapar and I are creating a panel event called SCOPE, which aims to help high school students discover their academic interests and spark their curiosities. It is often difficult for high school students to gauge what they’re interested in since there are too many fields and subfields for high school to cover in-depth. We hope to mitigate that by providing a place for students to listen to a panel of leading experts from a variety of fields.
 
The event will be on Saturday, February 6th from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. over Zoom. Each professor will give a quick presentation on their research and then take questions from the audience. Our panel will consist of professors Robert Tjian (Biochemistry), Josh Bloom (Astrophysics), David Card (Economics), Karina Palau (Comparative Literature), and Jill Berrick (Social Welfare). 
 
Would it be possible for Berkeley High School to publicize this event to its students? We have attached a flyer to this email. The link for sign-ups is tinyurl.com/SCOPE-signup.
 
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you,
Samuel Alber

SATISFY YOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS WHILE HELPING BERKELEY PUBLIC SCHOOLS!

For high schoolers, there are 2 primary pathways into Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV), which is a program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund:

1. Students who can give at least an hour every week could join Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV) as a “Distance Learning Volunteer.” These volunteers complete BSV’s onboarding training and then get matched with a BUSD Host Teacher (at the grade level and subject area of their choosing). They support online – in whole group Zooms, in small groups, or even in 1:1 breakouts. They might also help their Host Teacher review students’ asynchronous work. The distance learning volunteer application is HERE and we have several orientations in January.

2. Students who have time every once in a while can join Berkeley Schools Volunteer’s COVID-response email list to get notified about and sign up for other district-wide projects. Some projects are ongoing, like staffing the Ed Hub every Tues/Thurs afternoon (BUSD’s central distribution site for tech and learning tools) or joining BSV’s Tech Support team (to answer student and family tech questions asynchronously). BSV also has periodic one-time events like assembling science kits, or restoring a school garden. COVID-response volunteers receive about 2 emails each month with ongoing BUSD volunteer opportunities. Students can sign up to join BSV’s COVID-response email list HERE.

We hope many of you can join us on the front lines of BUSD’s COVID-response during this very difficult year.

Please reach out with any questions: duffyross@berkeley.net

Do you have broken stuff? 
Essential Repair Skills Training  
Why not learn to fix your stuff instead of sending it to landfill and spending money on replacements?  In these training sessions you will learn hands-on skills in how to diagnose and repair your broken belongings. You’ll also learn about the impact of throwing stuff away and how you can do your part to help the environment.  

The training will run from January 29 to April 30, 2021, meeting once a week, via Zoom, Fridays, 3-4pm. Sessions will be taught by Cal students, along with community repair experts.  The January 29 session will be a brief introduction, an overview of repair concepts will start in February, then in mid-February the class will focus on hands-on repair training sessions covering basic electronics, such as phones and tablets; appliances, such as lamps and headphones; clothing; bicycles and skateboards.  

The training will wrap up with a survey, asking participants to reflect on what they learned and next steps in terms of further learning, internships and career opportunities.  Certificates of completion will be given to students who attend the sessions and successfully complete the course and survey. The class will be limited to 10 students, with a waiting list to accommodate other interested students.
