Topics covered: Geology, Astronomy, Robotics, Technology
June 19: The Science of Music Part 1 • June 20: The Science of Music Part 2 *BOTH CLASSES FULL*
Calling all musical minds! In this workshop, students will explore the extraordinary processing of the human brain, working with Google AI, machine learning experiments, and Chrome Music Lab to discover the mysteries of perception and the senses. They will dive deep into the science of music through its connections to math and the abstract geometric art of Wassily Kandinsky–a painter with synesthesia who literally heard music in the colors, shapes, and lines of his paintings.
Topics covered: Energy, Technology, Geometry, Neuroscience, Art

July 3: Grossology *CLASS FULL*
Scientists use the gross things around our world to create helpful inventions, medicines, and even food. Some of that gross science is even closer than we think. In this workshop, students will look at some of the gross but helpful science we can find right around and within us! (Please dress your child in clothes they don’t mind getting dirty.)
Topics covered: Chemistry, Biology, Art
July 10: Pirates of the Panhandle Part 1 • July 11: Pirates of the Panhandle Part 2 *BOTH CLASSES FULL*
