Conversations on COVID-19: Finding Antibodies to Fight SARS-CoV-2
Caltech is pleased to invite Pasadena Public Library audiences to this special event. Christopher Barnes, senior postdoctoral fellow at Caltech, speaks with content strategist, science writer and Caltech alumna Lori Dajose about his work to characterize antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 and identify those that are most effective at neutralizing the virus. Antibodies are proteins produced by the body in response to infection. Ultimately, it is hoped that potent antibodies like the ones described in this study can be given as treatment or prevention for COVID-19. Sign up here

College Access Plan CAP is offering a 5-week workshop series for PUSD juniors to support their planning to apply to, receive financial aid for, and ultimately attend college. The series will cover all the key elements of the college readiness process (including changes related to COVID) and is open to all PUSD students in the Class of 2022. Our primary goal, however, is to give first generation and low-income students the support they need to be competitive in the college application process.
If you know a junior (or juniors) who you believe would especially benefit from participating in this program, we invite you to submit a nomination form for each student. We will reach out to all nominated students to let them know that someone in their school sees their potential and hopes they will apply.
All nominations must be submitted via this form by Friday, February 12, 2021. Student applications must be submitted by Monday, February 22, 2021.
Workshops for parents and students.
Title: The Admission Game
Date: Wednesday, February 10, 2021
Times: 3pm PST and 6pm PST
Overview: Do you ever wonder who gets in and why? "The Admission Game" answers these questions by taking you inside the admission process. TAG is a high-energy, high-impact, interactive case study exercise for students and parents in which the audience is transformed into an admission committee. Through more theatre than lecture, Peter teaches the audience by using and explaining relevant terms that help ease the stress of an otherwise frenzied process. This signature program reveals the "hidden agendas" of colleges and provides insight into how decisions are made, which helps students learn to find the colleges that fit them best and make decisions that help them compete for admission.
Overview: The pandemic radically changed the way students access and experience education. This workshop focuses on higher education and the changes in instruction, campus access, the admission process, and financing. Participants will take away tips and strategies for successfully navigating the college application process in light of these changes.
The story begins with a subtle elucidation to the complications and disappointments that come from orphanage life. Agnes and Marit, two females who grew out of the Mill orphanage and currently work at Thorsen’s, are anticipating the arrival of a new couple, the Madsens, who are considering adopting a child from the Mills. Eve, in Marit’s perspective, appears to be the perfect candidate, so she makes it her responsibility to cull all possible positive attributes and qualities about Eve to present to the Madsens. Under this stressful situation is the reality that Marit has magic, meaning she is a savant when it comes to using supernatural charms to elevate her actions to that of impossibility. Unfortunately, this magic comes at a cost. Its employment causes a precarious, icy buildup called “Firn” within the veins of the one who uses their magic. Though beautiful on the surface, magic can have deadly consequences. In spite of these dangers, it is the sister-like tether with Eve that causes Marit to employ her magic to stay in her life even after adoption. ...
