STUDENT SESSIONS:
 
Mission: Possible  (grades 4-6, 7-12) with  MD Destination Imagination
 
Your mission, should you decide to accept, is to confront an undisclosed challenge. with nothing more than your imagination, the qualities of your team, and some sundry, everyday, supplies. You may have to build a bridge of “x” feet in length, a tower of “y” feet in height, or create a presentation that emulates a Shakespearean drama ... and, there is that time limit pressure element. Behold the power of teamwork, appreciate the inner reserves of creativity. With these qualities, success is within your grasp. Think fast and create!
(grades 4-6 & 7-12, session limit: 25)
 
 
The Pastel Landscape  (grades 4-8) with  David Anderson, faculty,  Gilman School
 
If you like to draw, or even if you think you like to draw, come find out how to make your creations better – how to make them stand out more than ever. Take a step-by-step, hands-on, lesson, keying off an oil pastel landscape, and learn skills and concepts related to perspective, color theory, oil pastel techniques, and much, much, more. You will have created a work, based on the landscape that is set in front of you, that will make you stand back and stare. All the great artists have copied and learned from each other. And, you will see why.
(grades 4-8, session limit: 16)
 
 
We Have Lift-Off  (grades 4-8) with  Barry James, faculty,  Gilman School
 
This is “Rockets 101”. To be sure, the rocket you design and construct will be made of paper and the propulsion will be provided by compressed air. But, there’s a lot more to this than taking advantage of your BFP (body fat percentage) to exert maximum PSI (pounds per square inch) onto a SLP (stationary launch platform) – (i.e. stomping on an air pump). For optimal performance, you will need to know specific design concepts, experimentation techniques, aeronautics and scientific method. All this knowledge will be provided in order for you to propel your craft into upper space, to slip the surly bonds of earth.
(grades 4-8, session limit: 16)
