GREAT GREEK MYTHS AND MORE

This is a unique workshop with fascinating stories and exciting projects related to the myths of the ancient Greeks, Romans and Vikings. Hear the tales of Medusa, a gorgon with snakes for hair; Pegasus, who was born out of Medusa's blood; and the Chimera, a terrible creature with a body that was part goat, part lion and part snake. Explore the creation stories of various cultures and the homelands of their deities: the Viking Asgard, the Roman Vulcan's Forge, and Mount Olympus, the realm of the Greek immortals. Activities include Greek Jingo, a "banquet" and several art projects, including a miniature Trireme like Jason and the Argonauts used to gain the Golden Fleece. Create a Medusa hat or mask, and a frieze with drawings depicting Theseus, Hercules and others. Take-home prizes for all!

JUNIOR SPACE FORCE

Prepare to launch! This afternoon, we will explore the wonders of our solar system. Study Mars, our neighbor, and experiment with Martian space sand: put it in water, then scoop it up and out – the sand stays completely dry! Build with Star Wars Legos and play Space Jingo for real NASA patches. Work with glow-in-the-dark constellation cards, and make your own solar system model to hang in your room. Enjoy some space ice cream, learn about the life and work of an astronaut and take home an inflatable space shuttle. Have a blast in this great science class!

READ & WRITE

This two-session workshop helps students improve their reading and writing skills. We’ll start with a set of four short, high-interest books in different genres; two non-fiction texts, one folktale and one biography. Participants will read the books together, and perform comprehension exercises to increase recall and attention to detail. Instructor Carmina Trejo will guide students through written responses to each story’s content. Finally, students will write a paragraph summarizing each book. Take-home materials include the set of readers, a notebook and a response journal.
