      Full STEAM Ahead: Future of Integrated Learning at TL 
      Thursday, November 2
      6 - 7pm
      TL Library


      TL is moving full STEAM ahead into innovative learning thanks to the recent passing of Measure B--funding new facilities and improvements that will integrate the power of architectural design with new exciting educational pathways in integrated learning in STEAM--Science, Technology,  Engineering, Art & Mathematics.  STEAM curriculums embrace inquiry learning, collaborative learning, and project-based learning, all of which have been proven to have long-term positive effects on student achievement and success. STEAM programs also build 21-century skills to make our students more competitive for college and career. Principal Katy Dunlap will share along with a STEAM panel the evening's agenda which will include:

      • Highlight STEAM Enrichment Programs at TL
      • Architectural Design Review
      • New Classroom Clusters: New Curriculum Pathways


      Academic Excellence is a parent volunteer group funded by OneTL that advocates, supports, and develops enrichment programs that make education and the high school experience more dynamic at TL.  Academic Excellence is also the parent voice and forum that encourages and supports enrichment for all students at TL. 

      Guest Speaker: To Be Arranged.

      Marin Science Seminar: "Flooded by Science and Seawater: King Tides &What they Can Tell us about Sea Level Rise at China Camp State Park" with Sarah Ferner

      china.jpg

      The tidal marshes at China Camp State Park play a key role in helping scientists understand how marshes respond to sea level rise and how we can continue to protect them. In this talk, we will hear about what scientists have learned so far and how they are learning more through research right here in Marin.

      Sarah Ferner develops, leads, and teaches education programs for NOAA’s National Estuarine Research Reserve System in San Francisco Bay. As the Reserve’s first Education Coordinator, her job tasks are diverse - ranging from writing for publications and interpretive signs, to teaching teachers about new Next Generation Science Standards, to counting plants deep within Suisun Marsh, and more. Through it all, she likes to traverse the muddy transitions between water and land, and between science and education, following her passion for connecting people to nature through science. She is a certified California Master Naturalist. Previously, Sarah worked closely with the Chesapeake Bay-Virginia NERR as a Graduate Research Fellow where she studied the vegetation community change in a tidal freshwater marsh. Sarah received a B.A. in Biology from Carleton College and an M.Sc. in Marine Science from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science/College of William and Mary, and has over 15 years of experience teaching science to students, community members, and educators.

      Marin Science Semminar: Making Faces: Developmental Mechanisms of Craniofacial Evolution

       “Making Faces: Developmental Mechanisms of Craniofacial Evolution” Dr. Schneider will overview experiments in his laboratory that have revealed molecular and cellular processes involved in facial patterning. He will describe how his studies to understand the basis for skull shape in breeds of dogs led him to create a cell transplant system whereby duck embryos develop with quail beaks. He will bring an assortment of skulls.Get the flyer here. (November 15, 2017; Previously: 9/10/14, 10/2011, 10/2009)

      To study skeletal patterning, Dr. Schneider designed an avian transplantation system using quail and duck embryos, which differ considerably in their growth rates and anatomies. The experimental approach is simple: cells are exchanged between quail and duck embryos. This causes faster developing quail cells and relatively slower maturing duck cells to interact with one another continuously from the moment they first meet. Also, chimeras are challenged to deal with species-specific differences in size and shape. By looking for donor-induced changes to the formation of bone, cartilage, and other tissues, Dr. Schneider’s lab has been able to identify mechanisms that pattern the skeleton, and elucidate the role of development in evolution. A long-term goal of his research is to build a foundation for molecular-based therapies that can induce repair and regeneration of cartilages and bones affected by congenital defects, disease, and injury.

      Dr. Schneider graduated from Hampshire College in 1991. As an undergraduate, he published his first paper, which was on skull evolution in domestic dogs, following an internship at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. He received his Master's Degree in 1994 and his PhD in 1998 from Duke University. He also studied embryology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA, and at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on Long Island, NY. For his Postdoctoral work at the UCSF, Dr. Schenider investigated molecular mechanisms that pattern the craniofacial skeleton. In 2001, he joined the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UCSF.

      Marin Science: "Not Your Mother's Genes: How Maternal and Developmental Plasticity Shift Climate Change Responses in the Eelgrass Sea Hare" with Richelle Tanner, UC Berkeley's Integrative Biology

      Richelle is a PhD Candidate in UC Berkeley's Department of Inegrative Biology. She utilizes community ecology, population genetics, biomechanics, and physiology to answer questions about climate change effects in Phyllaplysia taylori, an estuarine sea hare living in eelgrass beds. Specifically, she is interested in how new populations of P. taylori colonize San Francisco Bay eelgrass restoration sites, as they play a large role in eelgrass ecosystem health. Her current work investigates maternal effects of temperature on larval development, latitudinal trends in thermal tolerance, and local adaptation. She also work with many types of Eastern Pacific nudibranchs and sea hares investigating similar questions. Prior to coming to UC Berkeley, Richelle finished her undergraduate degrees in environmental studies and jazz studies at the University of Southern California. Her undergraduate research projects investigated secondary productivity in subtidal eelgrass beds on Catalina Island, CA and the effects of historic climate change on temperature trends and the urban heat island effect in cities along the western edge of the United States.

      Finance and Philanthropy for TL Senior Class

      Before our seniors head-off to new endeavors beyond TL, they will have the opportunity to learn about financial literacy and philanthropy in a two class workshop, sponsored by Amanda Weitman, Senior Vice President, Wells Fargo Private Bank and Marin Community (MCF) Foundation. Financial literacy will cover the nuts and bolts of personal finance, budgeting, understanding your personal banking, and how loan decisions are made; as well as, understanding what a FICO score is and what it means. Our Philanthropy class lead by MCF explores the historical context of philanthropy and the  role philanthropy plays in society today. What is philanthropy? How is it practiced? And what are the benefits to the giver and the receiver? Students will wrap-up with a real-world example of philanthropy in action which will end with the granting of $1,000 to a local nonprofit organization. This will be the second year of this enrichment program generously supported by Amand Weitmand and Marin Community Foundation.
