Senior Scholar participants enjoy many advanced class options with teachers working across various disciplines such as the sciences, liberal arts, and more. Technology is the universal language! Everyone learns from each other through team projects and group work. This age group needs to be challenged and that’s what will happen on a daily basis. Master teachers plan class topics that stem from their own talents and passion. The difference is shown in exceptional classroom management, creative engagement, and unique problem-solving with students self-directing much of their achievements. Morning, afternoon, and full-day class choices are available!

The Design of Coffee: An Engineering Approach (gr. 7-10) FD
The Design of Coffee provides an introduction to chemical engineering, as illustrated by the roasting and brewing of coffee. Hands-on coffee experiments demonstrate key engineering principles, including material balances, chemical kinetics, mass transfer, fluid mechanics, conservation of energy, and colloidal phenomena. The experiments lead to an engineering design competition where contestants strive to make the best tasting coffee using the least amount of energy – a classic engineering optimization problem, but one that is both fun and tasty!
Intro to Film and TV (gr. 4-9) FD
