Now is the time for interested 11th and 12th grade students to register for the CSULB Ethnic Studies class during the spring semester.  Space may also be available for 10th graders, however it will be dependent on the volume of 11th and 12th grade applicants.  This class is offered free to Long Beach Unified students.  The class sessions will be held at each of the comprehensive high schools:  Cabrillo, Jordan, Lakewood, Millikan, Poly and Wilson. All classes will be held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.  Classes will begin on Sept. 9 and continue until Dec. 16, 2017.   Attendance is extremely important in this college class.   If you are unable to attend more than 90 percent of the class sessions, you might reconsider registering for this class, as your grade will be negatively affected by absences.  If there is enough interest to offer the courses in the afternoon on Saturday or during the week, we will consider offering the courses at those alternative times.  However, we must have enough student interest in order to offer these additional time options.

 

Enrollment is limited to 70 students per school.  If there are more than 70 students interested per site, students will be randomly selected to participate, with 12th graders given priority.  Students who are not selected will be offered a space at another site where space is available or placed on a waiting list for the spring semester.

 

Additional classes will be available for students who have already completed a previous Ethnic Studies class and wish to take additional ethnic specific courses.  These advanced courses will be offered at sites that generate the most interest.

 

If you are interested in being considered for the spring semester CSULB Ethnic Studies class, please complete the registration form.

Middlebury College invites you to visit our campus during our annual multicultural open house, Discover Middlebury, to be held October 8-10, 2017. We are looking for students who are intellectually motivated and would like to pursue higher education at a small liberal arts and sciences college.

The visit is open to seniors from traditionally under-represented groups: African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American, and American Indian students; students (regardless of ethnicity) with demonstrated financial hardship; and students who are first in their families to pursue a four-year college education. Unfortunately, international students or those living outside of the country cannot participate in this program. However, students in the U.S. with DACA status are welcome to apply.

Because Discover Middlebury is a popular program, we unfortunately cannot accommodate all applicants. There is a selective application process to fill the approximately 75 spaces available, with priority given to strong students who might not otherwise have a chance to visit campus. Meals, lodging, and a full travel scholarship will be provided by Middlebury College for all participants. Modes of transportation will vary depending on where a student is traveling from and may be by plane, train or bus.

The application deadline for applying will be August 11th, 2017. Students are responsible for completing the application, including unofficial copies of a high school transcript including grades 9 - 11, standardized test scores, and a brief statement to the Admissions Office. The statement (approx. one page) should address an important educational moment in your life and its impact on you.

We look forward to meeting you and assisting in your college selection process. 

http://www.middlebury.edu/admissions/visit/programs

If you have any questions, please call the admissions office at 802-443-3000 or e-mail Nicole Curvin, Carlyn Vachow, or Victor Filpo.

The Witnessing Change Video Competition is an educational and documentary effort done by the Climate Cost Project. The competition asks students to make 2-min documentaries about the climate change impacts in their communities. Our purpose is to have the students' work inform the public about the climate impacts that are happening in America now, and to help build a diversity of voices within the country talking about their own personal experiences of climate change. We do not believe that this has been done before, but think that it is critical for building public understanding and empowering individual communities to tell their own stories. This is the first year of the national competition, and we are hoping to have as many submissions from talented students as possible. There is no fee for entry and winners will receive cash prizes of $US 500 and $US 250 dollars respectively. We will also publicize the videos both directly through the Climate Cost Project, and through our partner organizations. We will also work to get the films shown at local film festivals and theaters around the country.

Minority Introduction to Engineering and Science (MITES) is a rigorous six-week residential academic enrichment program for rising high school seniors – many of whom come from underrepresented or underserved communities – who have a strong academic record and are interested in studying and exploring careers in science and engineering. 

This national program stresses the value and reward of pursuing advanced technical degrees and careers while developing the skills necessary to achieve success in science and engineering. In 2016, MITES served 80 students hailing from 26 states and Puerto Rico.

To be eligible to apply to MITES, applicants must be:

  • U.S. citizens or permanent residents
  • High school juniors or equivalent

Selection criteria

Students selected for MITES generally have the following qualities:

  • Passion for science, technology, engineering and math
    • This can be demonstrated through extracurricular activities, essays, and letters of recommendation
  • Strong academic record

We strongly encourage students from the following backgrounds to apply:

  • Underrepresented in science and engineering, defined as being African American, Hispanic/Latino or Native American
  • Underserved, defined as coming from low socioeconomic means, which may be indicated by qualification for free/reduced lunch
  • Potentially the first family member to attend college
  • Absence of science and engineering degrees in family
  • Coming from a high school with low admittance rates to top-tier colleges, especially rural or predominantly minority high schools

All applicants who meet the eligibility requirements will be considered, regardless of race or ethnicity.

STUDENTS FROM CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF MATH AND SCIENCE PARTICIPATE IN 2016 SAN BERNARDINO FORESTRY CHALLENGE

Green Valley Lake, CA — Nineteen students from California Academy of Mathematics and Science (CAMS) participated recently in the 2016 San Bernardino Forestry Challenge, one group of a total of 73 high school students from 9 schools from the So Cal area.  The event was November 9 to 12 at Green Valley Lake Christian Camp, near Green Valley Lake, California. Four teams from CAMS won second, third, fifth and sixth places.

One of the highlights for the students this year was the opportunity to create a business plan for non-timber forest products on the Camp property.  After spending a day on the Camp property collecting field data and interacting with natural resource professionals, students quantified potential earnings from often-overlooked forest products such as pine cones, Christmas trees, and decorative hardwoods.  During the Challenge, teams of students also completed field training, followed by a field test, to assess their technical forestry knowledge and data collecting skills.

“This is our 4th year competing and it’s getting better every year,” said CAMS teacher Matt Gold. Kanta Morinaga, a senior at CAMS, summed it up as follows: “As a city kid, this experience expands our perspectives of nature. Getting hands-on experience in what forestry professionals do, opens possibilities in fields we would never have imagined.”
