Help Count the Homeless
The South Bay Coalition for the Homeless needs your help to reach their goal of raising 250 volunteers for the upcoming Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count.

The Count is vitally important because when we know who and where homeless people are in the South Bay, we’re better able to plan and identify resources to provide vital services and, ultimately, move homeless families and individuals into housing.
Sign up for the count at http://theycountwillyou.org
Use the Team Name: South Bay Coalition for the Homeless

Solar Grand Prix Competition Comes to LB
Students, grade 6 to 12, are invited to design and build a solar-powered model car that will complete a race in the shortest possible time using the available power at the fourth annual Long Beach Solar Grand Prix competition.

A mandatory team orientation will take place Feb. 9, 2013. Car kits will be provided at this time. The competition takes place April 20, 2013.

The Solar Grand Prix challenges students to use scientific know-how, creative thinking, experimentation and teamwork to design and build high-performance model solar vehicles.

Teams will receive a Solar Car Kit, which includes a solar panel and an electric motor. Using any other materials, competitors will design and build a model solar-powered vehicle that will race on a 20-meter (65-foot) racecourse. The winner of the competition will be the team whose vehicle is the top finisher in a series of head to head elimination rounds.
