Into the Deep: An Exploration of the Sea

Have you ever wondered what lies beneath the ocean’s waves? Join us as we dive deep into the abyss and uncover the mysteries and treasures of the sea. We will explore the creatures of the deep, their habitats, dietary needs and more. We will also explore the differences between the Arctic, Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern Ocean. Join us in this highly hands-on class as we snorkel our way through the sea. (This is a very hands-on course. Please send your child in clothes that can get messy)

It's All a Game

Do you enjoy playing board games? Do you like the idea of making a game of your own? Have you ever wondered what you need to make a really good, solid, playable game? In this class, you will have an opportunity to play different games to get a feel for what you like and don’t like in a game. Then we will look into theme/genre, mechanics, variance, randomness, mastery, how to write rules, etc., and how these work together to make a very exciting game. Using design theory, you will start creating your own prototype games and get to play it and get feedback from others. Supplies will be provided and students should go home with a prototype of an original game.
