One Week Courses-- 6/20-6/23

Full Day -- 9:00am-3:00pm
Art in New York

This class is about seeing art in person! We will begin by identifying the main thematic interests of the class members, and then spend the week looking at works of art that align with the theme. Depending on the interests of the class we will visit exhibitions at four of the following collections: the Metropolitan Museum of art, The Hispanic Society, The Cloisters, The Frick Collection, the MoMa, the Guggenheim, the Whitney. Class days will be divided between guided looking at art (in the museum), and a discussion of specific works. We will consider the ways in which curatorial choices impact the viewer's experience, and the significance of seeing works in contexts radically different from their origin.

This course is open to rising 9th, 10th, 11th, & 12th grade students.

This course is no longer open.

Digital Manufacturing: Using 21st Century Manufacturing Tools to Solve Engineering Challenges

In this one-week course, students will learn what it means to manufacture in the 21st century - what is digital manufacturing, and how can we best utilize this technology? The class will learn about various computer-controlled machines including 3D Printers and Laser Cutters, and how to create designs that take advantage of and account for each technology's strengths and weaknesses. Through the learning of the basics of CAD (Computer Aided Design) and equipment in our Robotics Lab, students will create solutions to the week's engineering challenges. Each student will assemble and then be able to take home their own 3D printer that they'll use throughout the week.

This course is open to rising 10th, 11th, & 12th grade students.
