Catapults (CHS Engineering Dept.)

This course goes over the fundamentals of catapults, which includes the different types of catapults as well as the basic mechanics behind constructing one. The goal of the course is to help the students understand a level of basic physics as well as the different aspects involved in constructing a catapult for different situations. The course will end with students building a  catapult with a given set of requirements and launching it to hit a specific target.

(Mock) Trial at Hogwarts (Jonathan Koh)

Harry Potter is in the courtroom and you are part of the trial. You will learn about the justice system by evaluating and presenting a case based on the Harry Potter series (students need not have read the books to participate). Improve your advocacy skills by developing your ability to think critically and communicate effectively. What really happened in Ollivander’s Wand Shop? Will justice be served? Enroll to find out. (Civil case: 4th-6th grade; Criminal case: 6th-8th grade)

Origami – Beginner & Advanced (Donna Mullet)

Origami is the Japanese art of paper-folding. It is the magic of turning a simple square of paper into a frog, a flower or a fish – without tape or glue or scissors. The beginner group makes all projects together starting with basic folds and progressing to more complicated designs, with a different theme each day. The advanced group will spend the beginning of the class folding paper together and then continue on to independent projects. The advanced class requires knowledge of basic and intermediate folding techniques

Stock Market: Who wants to be a Millionaire! (Aaron Bush)

This course is designed to teach students how to invest in stocks in a way that can potentially turn small amounts of money into thousands and, yes, millions, several years down the road. Students will learn that investing in stocks (partial ownership of businesses) can give intelligent investors breathtaking returns over time. During the week, participants will learn the ins and outs of stock investing and discover in a personalized way how to apply it to their own lives. Those who participate will leave knowing how to choose good companies to invest in and how to continue advancing as investors even after the week concludes.
