All the Worlds A Stage
Please, make a scene. Celebrate the magic of theatre and create a new world through acting, improvisation and make believe. You will be guided through the basics of stage performance and delivery while gaining confidence and having a great time. This class will work towards a performance for family and friends to be presented on the last class meeting.
In The Lab
This fast-paced class will demonstrate that the pursuit of science is an interdisciplinary endeavor. Through hands-on experiments, you will explore a number of fields like medicine, biology, chemistry and physics. If you are interested in gaining information to focus your academic path, or just want to learn more about several scientific disciplines, this class is for you.
In this hands-on class, you will learn about meat, animals, food production, and food science. You will have the opportunity to gain experience at the Texas Tech New Deal Field Laboratory and learn what it is like to work with horses, cattle, sheep, and pigs. Transportation to the New Deal Field Laboratory is provided.
Roll your sleeves up and prepare for a hands-on introduction to forensics. You will participate in fingerprint detection and identification. You will learn about hair and fiber examination, document examination, and the critical role of DNA. Students will "solve a crime" using DNA evidence.
You are invited to discover the precise world of engineering design! In this project oriented class, you will work in teams to focus on a specific design problem, develop creative solutions to that problem, select the best solution, and then build a scale model.
Adventures in Art
Come join the fun and adventure of the world of art! Experiment in painting, color, shapes, and drawing. Design and creativity are emphasized in this fast-paced art class.
The Physics of Goop & Glue
The Physics of Goop & Glue: In this class, we will make goop and glue, test the properties of plastics, and talk about the physics involved.
Join us for some hands-on activities to understand how toxicologists study the effects of pollution and chemicals on the plants and animals all around us.
