Super Science is a traditional class that has been popular for the summer classes over the years. This year, 19 children explored scientific principles through hands-on activities.

Another popular class among the kids is the Lego Robotics Explorer class. Using the Lego Educational Mindstorm robotics kits, 14 children were able to explore simple machines.

Cosmetology Fun was an addition to the class offerings this June. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the cosmetology class, two sessions were offered. In these classes, 33 young people experimented with painting nails and styling hair.
