Jonathan Wurtele: Uncovering Antimatter-Matter Asymmetry with Laser & Plasma Technology
Who: Jonathan Wurtele is a Professor of Physics at UC Berkeley. He was a Research Scientist at MIT’s Plasma Fusion Center (1984-87) and an Assistant and Associate Professor in MIT’s Physics Department (1987-95) His research has led to the first trapping of neutral antimatter in 2010.
What: The Antihydrogen Laser Physics Apparatus (ALPHA) is a collaboration at CERN. In 2010, the group used ALPHA to trap neutral antimatter for the first time. A new apparatus (ALPHA-2), was commissioned in 2014 to study matter-antimatter imbalance. Professor Wurtele will speak about his experiences working with ALPHA/plasma and laser technology and studying antihydrogen in order to learn more about the asymmetry of antimatter and matter.

STEMinist= STEM + Feminism
Our mission is to create a safe and encouraging environment for people who are curious about science, technology, engineering, and math as well as gender equity issues, all while bringing awareness to the underrepresentation of women in STEM. We also aim to form a supportive community at BHS in which students, especially women and non binary students, can explore, experience, learn about, and pursue STEM careers.
Every Wednesday we host guest speakers who work in the various STEM fields, who talk about their job, how to navigate the STEM field as a woman and the path to their current careers.
Email us to join an email list for more updates.
Where: Room G213
When: Wednesday’s at lunch

You don’t have to go vegan to make a difference, go meatless monday! What is Meatless Monday? Simply eating vegetarian on Mondays, or any other days of the week. Our school is joining the global Meatless Monday campaign to make our impact. Why Meatless Monday? For the health of our planet, animals, and ourselves. If everyone in the U.S. ate no meat or cheese just one day a week, it would be like taking 7.6 million cars off the road! By eating 1 lb less of meat, we save more water than not taking a shower for 6 months, 16 pounds of grains, and 4 pounds of greenhouse emissions!
Find delicious FREE vegetarian food in the cafeteria, find tasty plant-based recipes at https://www.mondaycampaigns.org/meatless-monday/recipes and use the Zero Waste club’s Meatless Map that shows you all the vegetarian and plant-based options around campus (https://bhszerowaste.wixsite.com/website/menus)! Every meal counts. Make yours today!
Here at the BHS Meatless Monday Campaign, we care a lot about food. We know food is something that many of us hold closely to our hearts. We’d love to know more about your experience with food! This is why we have created a survey to gather information about the eating habits of our community and students’ opinions on the current BHS school lunch system, so that we can create a campaign that supports students whatever their situation may be.
We would greatly appreciate it if you help us with our mission by filling out this completely anonymous survey.
Estimated time to complete: 5-8 minutes
Join Redwood Literary Magazine
Interested in writing fiction or poetry? Join Redwood Literary Magazine! Redwood is published once per quarter, and our first meeting of the year is this Friday, August 27th, at lunch. We’ll be on the grass between the H building and the Little Theater. Visit redwoodberkeleyhigh.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

3:30 -4:00 pm.
The BHS LIBRARY is located on the 2ND Floor of the D-BUILDING. Here, you will have the ability to access the library on your own outside of class time, as well as during your classes with your teachers. The BHS Library is open an hour before school (7:30 – 8:30am Tue-Fri and 9:30 am on late start Mondays), during lunch, and an hour after school (3:30 – 4:30pm). Unfortunately, there is no eating or snacks allowed in the library this year, but you’re welcome to bring in a water bottle. One of the librarians, Ms. Rosenkrantz, Ms. Irby, or Ms. Fitzhugh, will always be there to support you with anything you need – finding a great new independent reading book, help printing, accessing an assignment.
