8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Explore the World: Continents, Cultures and More

Class 1801 (Evan Moore)

Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination! Join the class as we go on a world tour. During this research focused class, we’ll explore the six populated continents through food, music, dance, technology, and other cultural experiences! Welcome to our World of Wonder; where the wonders never stop and the adventures never end!

10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Science, Statistics, and Software, Oh My!

Class 1802 (Kelsey Clarkson)

Does water vapor in the air affect the clouds in the sky? Can temperature help predict what insects you will see? During this week-long exploration, students will connect the scientific process for answering questions and the statistical process for observing and experimenting. They will ask real-world questions that pique their individual interests and allow them to collect data outside on Bradley's quad. Then, students will use technology to gather and analyze data to answer their real-world questions. Join us to explore where science, statistics, and software meet!

1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Bridge Building with Civil Engineering

Class 1803 (Angela Beddingfield)

Can you build a bridge that weighs 10 times less than the weight it will carry? Do you trust a truss, or do you trust a buttress more? Join us this week as we explore engineering terms and concepts. We’ll apply what we discover as we continue to build big and bigger this week!
