Science Workshop

Computer Skills Workshop
This workshop offers a variety of computer experiences valuable to all participants whether they are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced in computer skills.

Karate Clinic
The Karate Clinic is intended to promote good character in its participants. Self-discipline, confidence and compassion are the focus for the instruction of this strong martial art. Students learn basic self-defense, form and sparring with minimal contact to ensure respect of the individual. In addition, cross training is sometimes utilized in order to reinforce the movements vital to the practice of Karate.

 

Wrestling Clinic
This clinic focuses on the basic moves that are essential to developing a sound wrestling foundation. In addition, various games will be conducted that enhance the skills needed to succeed in this ancient sport.
