Experiments in Physics Workshop

It is proposed to hold a summer workshop during June .
Every day the participants will experience the fun of
discovering how nature works by designing and
performing simple experiments using simple instruments
and devices. They will record their observations and
learn to get reproducible results through repeated
measurements. They will propose hypotheses based on
simple concepts and use theoretical ideas to interpret
their observations. They will thus obtain an insight into
how new physics is created and the study of natural
phenomena is taken forward.
Duration: approximately one hour every day
Registration:  50 dollars per person for weekly camp, on or before 10 June.

Take a Survey on a Universal Basic Income To Create Change

Hello!
I am a student at Fallon Middle School in Dublin, California, and I am working on a Civic Actions Project (CAP) to try to change policy and instate a Universal Basic Income into California state legislature with a group. We have already contacted several state authorities on this matter, including the Department of Finance. Our goal is to find a tangible solution to Californian issues such as poverty and job loss. A Universal Basic Income is a possible solution to these problems.
If you want to help make a potential change in California, please take our survey: click here.
It will take only seconds of your time — but it could make a gigantic difference in our approach to policy change!
Thank you for your time and consideration. Let’s look, together, towards a future where everyone has an opportunity to do well — and the funds to do it!

Dublin: Middle and High Schools

Neighbors, We are thinking of moving to Dublin but have been scared by reading overflows in middle and high schools. I understand that there is only one high and it is way beyond the capacity. I know they are using portable class rooms by adding more classes but wondering if it is having negative impact on securing AP placements and electives.  The property that we are looking has Wells Middle as the home school whose rating seem to have plummeted from 9 to six!
Interested to learn experiences of parents who have middle and high school going kids.
Thanking you all in advance
