LC PAGE welcomes Dan Hunter on June 18th for a free, public presentation about creativity. Registration is not required but will help for planning purposes. http://lc-page.org/store/
Imagination, Intelligence and Creativity Workshop – Are schools teaching students to be creative? How can we as parents encourage schools to foster creativity? This seminar for parents and teachers will discuss classroom and home practices to promote your child’s imagination and creativity. And, we will address how to make creativity an educational priority. Our society values most what can be measured. The H-IQ (Hunter Imagination Questionnaire) is the first on-line measurement that charts the growth of student imagination and ideation capacity that lead to creativity and innovation. H-IQ measures imagination and jumpstarts the creative process in students (and adults). We will discuss new measurements for imagination leading to creativity as well as the latest neuroscience research on imagination and intelligence.

Hunter is the inventor of H-IQ, the first assessment of individual imagination and ideation, available on line at www.hunter-iq.com.

Basic Engineering – Grades 1-3
In Snapology’s Basic Engineers children will build super-cool models that use gears, axels, and pulleys. Students will work in teams under guided instruction to build a different model each week. This class is designed so that children of all building abilities can build together. They will also have plenty of free-building time to express their creative side.
Amusement Park – Grades 4-6
Every child loves to go to the amusement park and ride their favorite rides, but have they ever thought about how to build one and the people who design them? In Snapology’s Amusement Park Adventure, students get to become designers of their own amusement park rides. While designing, they will learn physics and engineering concepts as well as problem solving skills, all
while having a blast!
