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.

New this year was a Cartooning Basics class. Fifteen artistic young adults learned the basics of creating characters from basic shapes and then used those characters to form story lines in cartoons.

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.

Another new class addition this summer was Fun in the Kitchen. Utilizing the state-of-the-art culinary lab at the Career Center, 28 students, divided in two classes, made dishes ranging from French toast casserole to spaghetti and meatballs.

The Signing for Kids class taught 12 students the basics of American Sign Language. By the end of the week, the students learned basic vocabulary, fingerspelling and numbers. They also learned an overview of the deaf culture.
