This course includes a brief overview of areas of current research and gives a close-up of cutting-edge developments in the field.

Creative Writing

In this course, students develop the imaginative, critical, and technical skills necessary for writing fiction and poetry. Using the published work of well-known authors as well as original student writing, students explore various topics and problems that face anyone embarking on the creative-writing process. 

Design Thinking

Grades 7-10

In this project-based course, students collaborate in teams, sharing skills and insights acquired each day while working together on exercises tailored to their ages and interests. Over two weeks, students develop a solid understanding of Design Thinking’s basic goals, concepts, and methodologies.
