    Instructor: Bryan Carr
    Philosophy is both the foundation and the peak of education, and young people are naturals at it if given the chance. In this introductory class, we will start with stories, games, and movie and video clips, as well as food, and then move on together to rediscover the biggest, most perplexing issues of all. Rather than be told answers, students will generate questions, by thinking together about science, ethics, art, and more. We will discover that thought is a great deal of fun, while developing critical thinking and listening carefully to each other. Because there is no end to puzzlement or to understanding, the class is never the same twice, and is appropriate for both first-time and returning students. Dialogue is guided by the instructor.

    August 19-23
    9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

    Instructor: Kim Chastagner
    The goal of this class is to familiarize students with the basics of public speaking and argumentation. Debate is a fun and engaging way for students to learn and practice the processes of logic and critical thinking. Students will build skills arguing both sides of an issue as well as defending their argument with logic and evidence. We will use a parliamentary-style format created by the Middle School Public Debate Program. At the end of the class, families are invited to a final debate presentation.

From Japanese Chindogu to improbable alternative energy sources to unexpected solutions to social needs, the class will explore, cross-pollinate, experiment, prototype and challenge to develop their next big ideas. A creative, inventive week!
