Iron Chef

Two One Week Courses: July 15 - 19 and/or July 22 - 26

Let the games begin! This week campers will need an appetite, a willingness to learn and try new things, and perhaps a competitive spirit. Each day will bring lessons, creation, outings and snacks. Campers need to be ready to get a little messy, try new things and go on walks. Come prepared with a water bottle, lunch (just in case our cooking goes awry!) and a desire to learn about food.

The Golden Record: Theatre Creation & Performance

One Two Week Course: July 15 19 and July 22 - 26

Grades 6 - 9

For the Voyager 1 and 2 missions NASA placed an ambitious message on board – The Golden Record. The records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials. In this summer program we’ll be working to create our own Golden Record of sorts. Our Golden Record will be composed of short (2 minutes or less), powerful plays that connect with the audience, taking inspiration from the Neo-Futurists, a theatre group from Chicago that is grounded in honest performance art. You will write, direct, and stage your own plays informed by your own experience, culminating in a final performance. (Maximum: 14)
