Peninsula Bridge brings robotics, computer coding to kids from under-served communities

G N I G D I R B P A G H C E THE T By Tiffany Lam

T

his summer, 425 kids from underserved communities, such as Belle Haven and East Palo Alto, are on campus at seven private schools on the Peninsula, including Sacred Heart Prep, Woodside Priory and Menlo School. The students, who qualified for the program (called Peninsula Bridge) by demonstrating their motivation to learn, are taking courses to expose them to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) topics. Peninsula Bridge, currently in its 25th year, expanded the curriculum of its five-week summer program this year to devote time to these science and technology subjects. In addition to the core academic areas of algebra and language arts, students participated in 50 hours of hands-on science, computer coding, robotics, 3D design, and 3D printing. Resources necessary to learn in this environment, including laptops, were provided. Students also went on tours of Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook and Yelp to learn about high-tech career opportunities. “We have a commitment to Peninsula Bridge to support their programs by introducing youth to Microsoft’s work,” said Thea Nilsson, Microsoft community

outreach manager. “We hope to inspire local students to imagine and realize a better future for themselves and their communities. I’d like them all to return one day — as employees.” Jocelyn Swisher of Portola Valley, coexecutive director of Peninsula Bridge, pointed out: “We live in a high-tech world where knowledge and confidence in STEM-related fields are now fundamental to career success, not only in Silicon Valley, but anywhere in the world.” Bridge eighth-grader Myriam Leo said hands-on science is fundamental to any subject. “We go outside of the classroom to do science and it opens our minds,” she said. “I also learned that science could connect to a lot of different things, like art.” In robotics, 30 sixth-grade students used the newest robotics kits from LEGO to build and program working robots. In 3D design and printing, offered to 15 seventhgrade students, students used 3D modeling software to design and modify objects that can be rendered on a 3D printer. In computer coding classes, students are introduced to Scratch, a free online programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab, which enables young people to program their own interactive

stories, games and animations from their computers. This is the first year that Bridge offered the computer programming elective, available to 100 sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders at three school sites. “It’s rewarding for the students to see what went wrong with their computer program and then correct it on their own,” said Ryan Reiss, a Peninsula Bridge teaching assistant at Woodside Priory. “It’s cool when you see them so engrossed by computer programming,” added Jack Swisher, another teaching assistant. Teaching assistants are high school and college students, while master teachers are recruited from the teaching staff of local schools. Many teaching assistants are also former Bridge students. The average student-teacher ratio is 4 to 1, and the average student-TA ratio is 2 to 1. Over the past 25 years, 95 percent of students who attended Peninsula Bridge sessions over four consecutive summers have gone on to graduate from high school on time, Bridge officials say. The program’s objective this year is to prepare students to attend college through a STEM-focused curriculum, according to Maureen Garrett, develop-

ment director for Peninsula Bridge. “By making the experiences interesting and relevant to the students’ lives, we hope that they will develop an interest in pursuing STEM-related classes in high school and college,” said Ms. Swisher. For some students, this seems to be working. “The coding elective has helped me get a head start for next year,” said Bridge eighth-grader Ivan. “I could even see myself coding for my career.” In addition to its summer program, Peninsula Bridge added a transitions program during the school year (from September to May) with Saturday workshops geared to help eighth-grade Bridge alumni transition to and navigate high school. The workshops cover topics like choosing the right high school, time management and financial literacy. Peninsula Bridge students come from 30 public middle schools across San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and reflect the demographics of communities the program is targeting, including those with Latino, African-American, Asian and Pacific Islander populations.

Turner sets world cycling records for his age group Three national cycling records were not enough for Jim Turner. The Menlo Park resident recently set two world cycling records in the 75-79 age group at the Olympic Training Center Velodrome in Colorado Springs. Mr. Turner’s first record was set in the flying 200-meter time trail, a timed event where the cyclist gradually builds up speed over a couple of laps and the final 200 meters are electronically timed. His time was 14.100 seconds. The second was for the 2K Individual Pursuit, a timed event to see how quickly one can ride two kilometers. Mr. Turner’s time was 2 minutes and 51.420 seconds, which beat the last record of 2 minutes and 52:417 seconds set by

a French cyclist in 2011. “The rules for setting world cycling records are significantly more stringent than for Jim Turner setting national records,” noted Mr. Turner. “A critical difference is that your head official for a world record attempt must be certified by the UCI (international governing body of cycling). It’s not easy to schedule one of them.” The two-day event, called Grand Prix of Colorado Springs, was held July 11 and 12, with cyclists from 10 countries. — Tiffany Lam

City launches monthly movie nights The city of Menlo Park has started a new community event, monthly movie nights. The first screening was the 2013 movie, “Frozen,” shown Friday, July 25, at the Arrillaga Recreation Center in the Civic Center at 700 Alma St. Admission is free to the screenings, except for “Ghostbusters” on Oct. 28, when there will be a $5 charge if you left your Halloween costume at home. Those in costume get in free. The Menlo Park movie series, dubbed “Cinemenlo,” is presented by the city’s Community Services Department.

Initially, the movies were going to be shown outdoors at Fremont Park. However, so many events are held there that the city wanted to give the park and its neighbors a break, according to Jim Cogan, economic development manager of Menlo Park. The other screenings are: Q “Rio 2” (2014), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, Arrillaga Recreation Center. Q “Monster University” (2013), 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, Arrillaga Recreation Center. Q “Ghostbusters” (1984), 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the Menlo-Atherton

High School Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton. (Attendees are invited to dress in character and act and quote along with the move.) Q “Free Birds” (2013), 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, M-A Performing Arts Center. Q “Elf ” (2003), 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19, M-A Performing Arts Center. Go to menlopark.eventbrite.com to make reservations, which are required only for screenings at the M-A Performing Arts Center. For more information, call the Community Services Department at 330-2200.

Trio of local poets at library event By Tiffany Lam Special to the Almanac

T

hree local poets will read from their work and talk about their writing process at “A Poet, a Poet, a Poet,” a free event hosted by the Menlo Park Library on Saturday, Aug. 2. The program will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Menlo Park City Council Chambers at 701 Laurel St., in the Civic Center. The trio of local wordsmiths includes Caroline Goodwin, San Mateo County’s first poet laureate; Kalamu Chache, poet laureate of East Palo Alto; and Jym Marks, poet, musician and Menlo Park business owner. The author of two volumes of poetry, Ms. Chache has been heavily involved in the East Palo Alto and Belle Haven communities. She has taught poetry workshops at Belle Haven School, and plans to start a series of workshops at the Menlo Park Senior Center in Belle Haven, she said. “There is power in expressing what you are experiencing and observing in life. Art moves!” Ms. Chache noted when asked about her poetry. “I hope to bring the message to all in attendance that poetry lives in each and every one of

us,” she said. Mr. Marks lives in Fremont, but is a familiar figure in Menlo Park: In addition to being a poet, publisher, public speaker, jazz musician, Army veteran, and father of four, he is the owner of a barbershop and hair salon, part of Markstyle Enterprises, in the Willows area of Menlo Park. This year, he is celebrating 45 years of owning the salon, he said. Mr. Marks has published 11 books of poetry, the latest entitled “Can’t Hold My Tongue in Captivity.” A resident of Montara, Ms. Goodwin was a Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford University. She teaches at the Stanford Writer’s Studio and the California College of the Arts. The poetry event is part of the Menlo Park Library’s Adult Summer Reading program, which runs through Aug. 9 and offers special programs and prizes to adult readers. Free wheelchair-accessible van service is available for Menlo Park senior citizens and people with disabilities. Call 330-2512 for van reservations.

I have always had great results promoting open homes in the Palo Alto Weekly and The Almanac, and I also run in special publications like Spring and Fall Real Estate, Neighborhoods and Info Menlo because of the great coverage and online presence. I am also a big believer in the Palo Alto Weekly’s Open Home Guide, which is by far the most accurate and comprehensive. I’ve had many buyers bring in the guide to my ‘Open Homes’ to see what I have listed.”

E. HEURLIN, aka MAGGIE HEURLIN, deceased. A Petition for Probate has been filed by: DENISE HOGAN KLEIN, aka ANN KLEIN, aka ANNE KLEIN in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN MATEO. The Petition for Probate requests that: DENISE HOGAN KLEIN, aka ANN KLEIN, aka ANNE KLEIN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held on August 26, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in Dept.: 28 of the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo, located at 400 County Center, Redwood City, CA 94063. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Petitioner: /s/ Denise Hogan Klein 2165 Santa Cruz Ave. Menlo Park, CA 94025 (650)854-6164 (ALM July 30, Aug. 6, 13, 2014) T.S.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (888) 988-6736 or visit this Internet Web site: salestrack.tdsf. com , the file number assigned to this case A544865 A. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site.
