A644: Friendship Bracelets: Wear Who You Are! in Splash Spring 2023 (May. 27, 2023)
Show the world who you are are by repping the colors of your country's flag, or even write out the name of your favorite band! Woven bracelets or "friendship bracelets" are ALL made out of one very simple knot, and leads to endless patterns and color combinations! Not only are they a cool fashion statement, but they a great way to show people what you are all about! They also make affordable gifts for friends.

S569: The Science of the Senses: How We Perceive Reality in Splash 2022 (Apr. 02, 2022)
Everyone knows the 5 senses, but do you about the 6th and 7th senses? What about HOW we hear, touch, see, taste, and smell? How do we convert the world around us into information that can be processed by the brain? Come learn about sensation and perception! We will be going over mechanical, chemical, and neural paths that let us experience the world around us as well as try out a few “sensory illusions” (and you thought we could only play tricks on your eyes) 

By then end of the class you will be able to answer the question: does reality only exist in our minds?
