What if we added hydrogen peroxide and dish soap? What happens when we add oil and water? How can I make slime? Are these the questions you often have or hear? In this course, we will explore some unique chemical combinations. We will use everyday materials found at home to make some interesting science experiments. We will learn the science behind certain materials to create and explore certain phenomena. Register here

Take your ukulele playing up a level this summer! Recommended for boys and girls with some playing experience (Ukulele Universe Level I or equivalent as approved by instructor), students will work on reading more complex rhythms, decipher notes on the staff, and read tablature for chords. A ukulele at home is required (soprano or concert) and questions about appropriate instruments should be directed in advance of the class to acyman@gilman.edu. Music will be provided for practice between sessions. Blast off to new heights with us in Level II!

We will spend a week with various math games, puzzles, and activities that build on number sense, operational thinking, logic, early algebraic thinking, and general problem-solving. Students may work in small group breakout rooms from time to time. While Zooming, students should have paper, a dry erase board (physical or virtual), or some other form of working out their thinking. This will be a fun, homework-free experience, but students should be comfortable using Zoom and entering short answers to things via the Chat feature. Students may sign up for one or both weeks, but realize that some of the activities and games will be repeated the second week. Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions before or after registering. (aherb@gilman.edu) Register here.

Have you ever wondered how crime is solved? How can a single hair land a person in jail? How can DNA exonerate a person from a crime? These are some of the questions we will explore using the science behind forensic investigations. Students will learn how to process crime scenes, analyze hair and fibers, fingerprints, and documents left at the scene. We will look at some landmark cases that have shaped the way we process crime scenes. In this course, students will learn about forensic techniques used and applied at crime scenes. The content, while advanced, is challenging but created in a way that is interesting and engaging with age-appropriate topics for students. Register here.
