E485: The Engineering Design Process in Splash Spring 19 (Mar. 16, 2019)
We're going to go over the engineering design process and what goes into it starting from needs finding to when to stop iterating. Then we're going to design something together as a class. The class is short so you will be asked to participate most of the time. Be prepared to throw out some really wild ideas.


H486: Greek Myths in Splash Spring 19 (Mar. 16, 2019)
This isn't Percy Jackson's backyard. We're going to do a quick run through of the creation of the universe as the Greeks know it, then, we'll dive into some interesting stuff like the Hymn to Demeter and Sophocles plays. More likely than not we are going to get stuck in a lot of places in the creation myth and then in Hesiod's Works and Days. By the end of the class, you'll have a solid idea of what happened in Greek Myths and a list of texts to look at if you feel so inclined. Consider it a break between your other classes at Splash!
