They call Session One of the Boscobel Summer School Program an “enrichment session,” but a quick look at the syllabus reveals a whole lot of fun stuff, starting out with Summer Fun for K-1 students, with activities that include “games, crafts, snacks and loads of fun.”
Session 1 runs in Monday through Friday mornings from 8:30-11:30, June 19-30, with 137 students who were in grades K-6 over the recently completed school year registered. The program is free, with only minimal supplies needed. For example, the always-popular “Think It Make It Break It” class taught by Mr. Buchholz requires duct tape, milk jugs, rice, electrical tape and nails, among other low cost items.
“Do you like building things, testing them, and then possible smashing them?” asks the syllabus. “Then this is the class for you! You will build and test bridges, construct spaghetti skyscrapers, create slow-motion pinball machines, make sling shot rockets, and many more activities. Each and every day you will be building a new and exciting project.”
