OUTspoken: Storytelling Workshop and Storyslam, May 5th, 12th, and 19th 2021
The Moth (broadcast on NPR) is coming to LaGuardia on 5/5 and 5/12 from 2-5 pm and on 5/19 from 5-6:30 pm, via Zoom! The Moth Education Program (flyer attached) offers safe space for students to share their experiences and build community, and possibly connect beyond LaGuardia. This virtual workshop will consist of two 3-hour sessions across two days. In the workshops, instructors from The Moth will introduce the concepts of Moth Storytelling, help participants find the stories they would like to tell, and work with them to refine and practice their stories. After the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to share their stories in a virtual College storySLAM (3rd day), produced by The Moth, which will be open to the wider college community. All sessions will be held on Zoom. Seats are limited. $50 amazon gift cards will be awarded to the final three contestants participating in the storySLAM.

INVITED PHYSICS TALK: An anomaly in an anomaly? First results from the Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment. Friday May 7th, 15:15–16:25
DATE: Friday May 7th, 15:15–16:25
“An anomaly in an anomaly? First results from the Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment”, by Dr. David Kawall, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
The Fermilab muon g-2 experiment just released its first measurement of the magnetic behavior of the muon. Muons are like electrons, but heavier and short-lived. They behave like little bar magnets whose strength can be predicted with impressive precision. An interesting feature is that an accurate prediction requires the addition of quantum corrections that arise due the interactions of the muon with other fundamental particles of nature such as electrons, photons, quarks, etc. Comparison of measurement results and predictions tests the completeness of our model of nature, and a significant discrepancy would indicate the need for new physics. The concepts behind the Fermilab experiment and the many challenges it faces will be presented, along with a comparison with the theory and future prospects.
This is a public event, everyone is more than welcome! All questions should be directed to Dr. Roman Senkov at email@example.com.
Free “Quantum Physics” course, on Fridays 6-8PM (next lecture: May 7th 2021 at 6PM)
by Dr. Roman Senkov (firstname.lastname@example.org) This is a set of free and friendly online lectures/seminars on topics of Modern Physics. The lectures will be given by Prof. Roman Senkov, scheduled on Fridays, from 6pm to 8pm, via zoom. These lectures can serve as a good transition into a for-credit modern physics course, in particular, Quantum Mechanics for Engineers, that the electrical engineering students have to take at City College. After taking this set of lectures (about 20hrs) the you will learn the basic ideas of Quantum Mechanics, which had revolutionized the way people thought of space, time, matter, and energy. You will also learn about the experiments that led to the development of early quantum mechanics.

INVITED PHYSICS TALK: Introduction to Particle Physics. Friday April 30th, 15:15–16:25
DATE: Friday April 30th, 15:15–16:25
“Introduction to Particle Physics”, by Dr. Chandra Nepali, LaGuardia Community College/CUNY
Fundamental building blocks of matter, as we understand so far, are hadrons, leptons and bosons. Hadrons have internal structure, leptons do not have internal structure and bosons are force carriers. In this presentation I will talk about these building blocks of matter and their basic properties. Special emphasis will be given to muons.

Panel Discussion on “Pitch and Excel” on Friday, April 23rd, 3:00pm to 5:00pm
LaGuardia STEM Club would like to cordially invite you and your students to a Panel Discussion on “Pitch and Excel” on Friday, April 23rd from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. We envision students will highly benefit by attending this event and getting advice for their professional development from our panelists, chosen from different fields of expertise.
Event Panelists: Dr. Matthew Wipperman (from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals); Evelyn Carrasco (from LaGuardia SBDC Senior Business Center); Dr. Thomas Onorato (from LaGuardia’s Natural Sciences department); Prof. Rajendra Bhika (from LaGuardia’s Business and Technology department); Unique Upreti (from Queens Library)
We will also have a mini-competition during this virtual event, wherein students will get the opportunity to present their Elevator Pitch (after a brief mentorship session) and win a prize! We will have total three prizes for the best pitches. Please help us spread the word and encourage your students to register for the event. A Zoom link will be sent after registration.
