Science club will utilize fun (and safe!) experiments to show students that science can be found everywhere. Using common household supplies, kids can become scientists in their own homes! Each week will consist of a lesson dedicated to understanding the science behind the lab of the week, as well as an actual scientific experiment or demonstration to reinforce these concepts. A post lab analysis and discussion will also be included.

Science Club

The goal of this workshop is to rekindle our students' love of writing by freeing up the

creative process. Each class will involve a combination of studying other

writers’ works and student-lead creative writing.

 

July sessions

Students will internalize and put to practice various literary techniques, such as imagery and metaphor, and styles that reflect their own voice. Ultimately, the course will culminate in each student writing an anthology of 4 short stories. 

 

August sessions

Students will study and put to practice various literary techniques, such as imagery and metaphor, and styles that reflect their own voice. Ultimately, the course will culminate in writing a memoiristic essay that either focuses on a slice of life or the whole of one’s life.
