Learning the basics of movement and dance-- what fun! I learned a bunch of styles and they were all fun! We had a great teacher who showed us the moves and how to step to the music. We were all creative and used what we learned to move to the music. It was fun meeting the other kids and creating something original every week!
The Digital Darkroom 8 years I was taught how to take pictures with a digital camera! Now I can create and do things on my own -- everyone gets to see what I did over the summer and my friends think it is great! Met tons of other studetns my age from all over -- great experience!
Digital Shutterbugs 8 years Wow! I finally was taught how to take pictures with a digital camer and it all makes sense. I had so much fun learning how to make things look really professional and will be able to use what I learned during the year in my school projects. Best part was I took home some great pictures -- now they are on my wall!
I learned all the basics of robotics under the guidance of our expert camp instructors. I constructed simple machines and build the programs to make them work! It was really a scientific experience!
Taekwondo is Fun! I learned all the basics and every day felt that I got better. I met new friends and next year I will take it again as I earn another belt!
