Fun for the Summer

So yesterday, we got the MSJC mailer that lists summer classes.  Right now, I’m wishing I was a kid again.  There’s some FUN stuff listed that’s happening this summer.  Here’s a sampling:

LEGO Battle Bots, ages 8+
Students learn to design and build their own motorized battle cars and other vehicles.  Using principles of simple and complex machines, gearing and mechanical advantage, students will try to help to flip, push or smash their opponent’s battle vehicles.  Brain over brawn through applied physics.  Lessons demonstrate the use of mechanical lifts, nets, drills, ramps and more to disable or overcome other bots.
July 6-10, 1:30-4:30pm

Junior Engineering 1, ages 5-7
Using LEGO Educational Division Materials and LEGO Technic elements, children will learn by doing.  Course covers gears, levers, wheels, axles, structures, forces and simple machines.  This is an integrated science and math class and is the first class leading up to the Robotics Academy!
June 15-19, 9:30am-12:30pm

Summer Horsemanship Day Camp, ages 8+
Your children can learn to ride and care for a horse while having fun with other kids their age.  Campers are divided into riding groups and take riding classes each day as well as classes in horsemanship with our instructors.  Our philosophy is to have fun while emphasizing safety & sound technique, in a non-competitive environment. Activities include: horsemanship, barn chores, riding lessons and gymkhana.
July 6-10 or July 13-17, 8am-12pm

Basic Forensic Anthropology, ages 15+
Are you curious how characters on TV shows can tell so much from a skeleton?  In this class, students will learn how forensic anthropologists can determine information such as age, sex and race from human bones.  See what they look for to determine if trauma or disease could have been involved in causing death.
July 13-17, 1-4pm

And there’s SO MANY more!  Visit www.msjc.edu/ce for more information about these and other classes being offered this summer at the Menifee campus.

PS – There’s a number of classes for adults as well.  Even some to help those who are still learning about their computers and the internet!
