Summer Study 1997 - Thursday, August 7

Thursday we started the day with a talk on the World Wide Web. The Interns showed us a couple of neat pages. For example, Matthew Porter showed us his home page which has interesting Java effects and has a lot of links to other sights. After that Sheryl Burgstahler talked about how kids with disabilities communicate with faculty. For the work based learning experiences the Scholars learned about how to find internships. After lunch John Smith talked about how earthquakes form, and how Seattle might go under someday. Then when Kurt Sahl took the floor the kids learned about working in groups; when they formed groups they where given a problem to solve as a group. Last but certainly not least was the treasure hunt. The treasure hunt is where you read the clue, and then you have to find the right building for that clue. The Scholars did the treasure hunt in groups. After that we all took a break for the night.
