UPDATE: All seats are now filled for September 9th; however, we do still have availability in our October date for 4th-6th graders and 6th-8th graders, and February classes will be up soon. You may also join the waitlist for classes that are full – occasionally we have drops and can add students from that waitlist.
Do you have a 2nd-8th grader with an interest and talent in robots, circuits, geography, art, or science fiction? Check out the classes for our upcoming WINGS date on September 9th in Iowa City!
A variety of classes are available, such as Watercolor Science (grades 2-4). In this workshop, students will use chemistry to create their very own watercolor paints. Using cabbage dye and household items, students will learn about the pH scale and mix their own liquid watercolor palette. Using our homemade watercolors, we will learn about other nifty watercolor tricks and techniques including using salt, rubbing alcohol, and wax to create watercolor works of art!
Another option is Making A World Through Science Fiction Writing (grades 6-8). Want to build and explore your favorite sci-fi setting in VR? In this course, we’ll talk about what makes our favorite sci-fi worlds so rich and enjoyable.
We’ll try designing and possibly exploring some of these worlds using the virtual reality design program, CoSpaces. Once we’ve spent some time exploring, we’ll work on coming up with ideas for worlds of our own and some stories that could happen there.
And if you already have plans on the 9th, we have several additional WINGS dates coming up, too.
