H5839: World Religons (and non-religons) in Spark! 2012 (Mar. 10, 2012)
This class will be a brief introduction to a great diversity of religions. We will discuss the well-known religions, lesser known religions and religious sects, and non-religious movements. (such as Confucianism and Buddhism) Refreshments will be provided during the discussion portion of the class, where we will look at similarities and differences between religions, what the purpose of religion is, and how we can use religious diversity to our advantage. This class will be a safe non-pressure environment for open discussion, and is great for students who are open-minded and interested in broadening their cultural understanding, love to learn and discuss different cultures, or want to share something about their own religion.

X5494: Chemistry and Cinnamon Rolls: An Interactive Study in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
A fun class on how to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. Absolutely NO cooking experience required. We will start off by making the dough, and as it rises, we will discuss some of the chemical properties at play, such as the protein content of the flour, and the role of each of the ingredients we use, such as yeast. When the dough has risen, we will make and bake the cinnamon rolls, make the icing, and reap the rewards! This class is great for anyone with a natural curiosity about the science of cooking and students will work in groups of 3-4 to make their cinnamon rolls.
