Rebecca Dawn Jolitz loved science fiction, filmmaking, and astronomy from her earliest years. At star parties for the public, Rebecca showed people the planets and stars (her favorite double is Alberio, the blue and gold "Cal star") with her Celestron C-5 telescope. Rebecca had even taken her telescope to Stanford Tech Trek (see "Rebecca Jolitz Demos Telescope Techniques at Stanford Tech Trek") to demonstrate how SCT telescopes work, even though she wants to major in astrophysics at Cal. She went to Cal Day every year, especially to see Professor Shugart do his "Fun with Physics" lecture.
Rebecca accomplished much as a video editor and producer, and created movies for film festivals (see "Rebecca Jolitz Debuts Movie in Kids Film Fest"). She currently works on a research project on video serving for educational use using a modern version of Berkeley Unix 386BSD (Jolix).
Rebecca spent much of her youth on basketball, needlework, playing the guitar, and collecting Breyer horses.
