Hacking the College Choice Process

This course will discuss smart ways of evaluating college options, whether you’re just at the beginning of your college process or near the end. We will emphasize the kinds of information available to us about colleges’ strengths and weaknesses , as well as the many dimensions we might consider when contemplating what a “good” college is, in the first place. We will focus on interactive Q&A when possible!

Knot Knot!

A course on making knotted friendship bracelets, focused on the basics: how to make the knots, how to start/finish a bracelet, how to make stripe and Chevron patterns. Students can observe if they don’t have the materials (several ft of string in at least 2 colors) but it would be better if they can follow along.

Good Luck, Bad Luck: Exploring Superstitions Around the World!

This course will encourage students to explore and learn about superstitions in their own culture, and others. Through sharing stories, students will be encouraged to reflect on and think about superstitions in a judgement-free classroom environment. This class will include activities such as asking students to check themselves for ‘beauty marks,’ and sharing what superstitions mean to them! I will be ‘incorporating’ my black cat, Truffle, for extra engagement.

Museums 101: Behind the Scenes

This course will cover how galleries in museums are just the tip of the iceberg – the majority of what museums do happens behind the scenes! The focus of this course will be on natural history (we’ll explore the many steps an animal goes through to be transformed into taxidermy or a study specimen, and the important distinctions between these two; as well as to what purpose natural history collections are stored) and human history (with discussion of ethics and the changing approach many museums are taking in response to displays of human remains, as well as the repatriation of objects to Indigenous peoples). This talk is open to any ages, as it is based on gallery animation provided at the museum for all. With small children, content is kept simple and appropriate to knowledge and comfort levels, with an emphasis on how we can ALL be scientists. This is a one-off course with no follow-up or homework.
