June 28 - Aug. 6

Ages: 9-15
Cost: $265 per weekly class; $745 for a 3-week course

Imagine using physics principles to design your own superhero, learning how to invest and run a real business, or practicing the art and psychology of game design. Part summer camp, part academic class, Hun Adventures are project-based learning experiences that are designed to stimulate the imagination and tickle the funny bone. 

Choose one, two, or three week sessions in three distinct learning tracks: Business, STEAM, and Humanities. Each session draws on multiple disciplines, requires collaboration, involves Shark-tank style pitches, and leads to a culminating project that parents and kids will be proud of.

Hun Adventures in STEAM class titles: Superheroes, film design, game design

 

Hun Adventures in STEAM Courses

Hun Adventures in STEAM classes dispel some of the "movie magic" our students have been introduced to. In Week 1, we'll learn what it really takes to develop superpowers. In Week 2, we'll talk about how films were created before the age of CGI, and it Week 3, we'll talk about some of the effects used to create some of the video games our kids know and love. Courses run from 8:00 - 10:00 a.m. Students can join for one themed week, or attend all three in a series. The series runs twice this summer, beginning June 28th and July 19th.
