W13767: Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) Ice Cream in Spark 2020 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2020)
Want to watch some cool chemistry and eat some cool liquid? Come join us for a delicious treat!!!

A13966: The Music of Celeste in Spark 2020 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2020)
Celeste is an indie game that first drew us in with its story and gaming and kept us thrilled with its amazing soundtrack. To us, its musical ideas are basically as innovative as our favorite classical music works, and that's something we'd like to share with you! In this class, we'll talk about why Celeste's music is so effective, as well as how a great soundtrack can make a (seemingly simple) platformer game unforgettable.

M13162: Advanced Integration Techniques Part 1 in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Do you know how to do the following integrals? $$\int_0^\infty x^{2019}e^{-2020x} dx$$ $$\int_{-\infty}^\infty x^2 e^{-x^2} dx$$ $$\int_0^1 x^{2019} (1-x)^{2020} dx$$ By the end of this class you'll know how to do these integrals and much more very quickly! We'll discuss gamma and beta functions and their applications to statistics and physics. Note that parts 1 and 2 of Advanced Integration Techniques cover different material and are independent of each other. You can take one without the other, or take both together.

M13164: Advanced Integration Techniques Part 2 in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Do you know how to do the following integrals: $$\int_0^1 \frac{x^{2019}-1}{\log x} dx$$, $$\int_{-\infty}^\infty \frac{\sin x}{x} dx$$, $$\int_0^{\pi/2} \frac{1}{1+\sin x} dx$$? By the end of this class you'll know how to do these integrals and much more! We'll discuss cool tricks like the Feynman technique and Weierstrass substitution. Note that parts 1 and 2 of Advanced Integration Techniques cover different material and are independent of each other. In particular, Part 1 is not required for Part 2. You can take one without the other, or take both together.

P13165: CinemaSins in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
The Youtube channel CinemaSins sins movies, making videos like "Everything Wrong with X". Come to learn all the common themes: roll credits, deux ex machina, Prometheus school of running away from things, product placement, too many seconds of logos, and much more! We'll learn some film theory along the way too. By the end, you won't be able to watch another movie without sinning it yourself!

X13375: Flirting 101 in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
