|AI Machine Learning Clubemail@example.com||Mahitha Thippireddy||Student-Run: The club will provide an introduction to artificial intelligence learning and provide opportunities for all interested members to explore the rapidly growing field of artificial intelligence. The AI ML Club introduces students to key programming ideas- especially in Python, which is fairly simple- that enable the application of ML in computer science and society at large. Students will learn how to incorporate fundamental ML algorithms into their own work, as well as analyze the social and ethical consequences of how AI is currently utilized in our day-to-day lives and future plans for it to be used. Students will be able to create a series of projects that demonstrate how ML and AI may be used to optimize and anticipate data and processes in a variety of ways. Healthcare, the workplace, entertainment, our quality of life, and society, in general, all benefit from these advancements. However, increased reliance on AI and robotics has ramifications for work possibilities, corporate career growth, new and different sorts of mental and social stress, and health difficulties that were not foreseen even a few years ago. Our underlying focus will be addressing societal problems using Machine Learning.||Tuesday, 3-4PM, Rm. 700B|
|Application & Game Development Clubfirstname.lastname@example.org||Mehal Bhattacharya||Student-Run: The purpose of Application & Game Development is to enrich the knowledge and creative skills essential for programming and design in apps and games. Many students enjoy learning about computer science at High School South, but they may need guidance and collaboration with regards to developing an application and exploring the creative boundaries of forming a game from scratch. To accomplish this, we will create game development sessions within the club as one of our activities. Students will be able to work collaboratively with their peers in teams and participate in several in-club events throughout the school year, held during our weekly meetings. In these events, students will design a game and present it to their fellow club members as a way to spread creativity and share their knowledge. Officers will work with club members to implement these skills into applications that can solve real-world issues. The Application & Game Development club will be able to provide a platform for students to form their own groups and develop teamwork capabilities to design applications that can solve problems the world faces today. In order to equip students with the knowledge necessary to develop their own applications and games, officers in the club will have weekly live tutorial sessions during meetings to teach their peers how to use Unity (a platform used for developing games on computers), Python, C#, C++, and Java. With these means, students at South will be encouraged to implement a variety of skills on a larger scale and start their own apps through which they will expand their problem-solving skill sets further. These positive and creative environments will consist of students who are specialized in many diverse abilities, such as design and programming. Furthermore, this environment will provide a space for students to not concern themselves with assignments and grades as it will be a place for them to express themselves in an imaginative manner.||Thursday, 3-4PM, Rm.

|Japanese Language and Culture Clubemail@example.com||Jeffrey Yuan||Student-Run: An alternative to the methods used in our school's language curriculum, The club aims to provide a drastic change in the environment of learning languages, specifically Japanese. Using language immersion, we aim to use Stephen Krashen's hypothesis on comprehensible input to its full potential to help all of our participants begin their path towards Japanese proficiency. Our main goal is for our year-long participants to be able to comprehend a children's anime, or even another simple anime (From that point on, it gets much easier).
Culture: Working with the videos we use for immersion, my Native Japanese partner will work to create mini-lessons that explain in great depth and intricacy the culture they will encounter in their immersion. Being as Miu has spent most of her life in Japan brings us a diverse rich perspective from a real credible source. So instead of purely targeting the language itself, we’ll be providing a base in which the students can further learn off of. Culture will remain constant throughout the year, correlating with kind of the content we see through our immersion.

"Psychology, today, seems to be a field that is not explored much as a career path, despite it being one of the most interesting, important, and rewarding professions currently. As two students with a massive passion in the field, our club will be centered around the education of psychology through the interest of South students. The purpose of our club is to increase the engagement in discussions, events, projects, and activities focused on psychology, which we will strive to achieve through our main goal: allowing for the exposure of knowledge, careers, and research in psychology to students who are interested in pursuing the field in their futures, or those who would just like to enhance their scope of knowledge on the subject. We have numerous proposals for expected activities (please read the note at the bottom) that will take place during our meetings, such as:
Collaborating with AP Psychology teachers in creating activities, such as lectures, focusing on educating the members about different aspects of the study.
Requesting professionals with careers in psychology, such as therapists, local psychology professors, school social workers, human resource managers, and clinical psychologists, to guest speak about their experiences in the psychology field.
Creating “career panels” where students can learn more about potential opportunities and careers within the field of psychology.
Organizing virtual “field trips” to local laboratories where clinical psychologists are conducting research, to allow more exposure to the research aspect of the field (all “field trips” will be virtual, i.e. zoom meetings, as we acknowledge that physical field trips are not permitted).
Following introductions to different broad topics, allowing members to research and explore areas of interest to create projects and eventually presents a final product of a topic or topics they are passionate about.

|Quantum Computing Clubemail@example.com||Sumedha Jayaraman||Student-Run: The purpose of this club is to bring awareness to the newly emerging field of Quantum Computing. Many might believe this topic requires extensive knowledge of mathematics and quantum mechanics at the level of a graduate or a postdoctoral. Our club will disprove this preconceived notion by allowing South students to dip their feet into this exciting field. As I had gone through an entire year of Quantum Computing course and found it fascinating, I'm confident that many at South will like and greatly benefit from it. During the first half of the year, we will build our quantum computing knowledge through lectures and group activities on the underlying math of quantum computing (complex numbers + linear algebra) as well as the high efficiency and applications of quantum computers vs classical computers. Throughout this process, we will bring in virtual guest speakers from a variety of fields in quantum computing from companies such as IBM. This will show South students how interdisciplinary the field can be and its various applications in today's world. Fun engaging activities include running real quantum algorithms on IBM's website, Qiskit, which has a free quantum computing simulator for users to explore. After we learn from each other and gain knowledge about the subject during the first half of the year, we will start a research project for club members to explore their interests in quantum computing. We will guide them on research techniques and ways to look for new ideas along the way. Once everyone writes their article on a chosen topic related to quantum computing, the officers will choose the best ones and collaborate with the Journalism club to feature it in the school newspaper: The Pirates Eye.||Wednesday, 3-4PM, Rm. 900A|

1. Purpose: Music is the only language that the entire world understands. Hence, I thought of this club which will provide a comfortable, open platform and a creative space and environment for music loving friends who wish to come together to create global fusion music, both instrumental and vocal.
----------To interact musically with students from varied cultures, and similar interests (music), who all love making their own music and collaborating with global music genres, such as Indian, Western, Italian, African, Samba, Salsa, etc.
---------- Creating, composing, recording, and presenting their own music creations AS ONE.
-----------To provide a platform for students who learn/are talented and gifted musically for their creative juices to flow freely while collaborating with the music rhythms and intricacies of varied music culture. For example; in the past I have been a part of an interesting collaboration between western and indian percussion and African and Indian percussion instrument pieces. As a club, my goal is to expand this further to various other music genres.
