Class Information
MATH ADVENTURE

Math Adventure is a recreational mathematics program for kids of all ages, designed to inspire them to love doing math.  Kids play a role-playing game in which they fantasize a quest to find a lost treasure, nab a bad guy, slay a monster, or solve a mystery.   Maze Dodgeball or Capture the Flag!

GEOGRAPHY ADVENTURE

Travel around the world in search of crooked criminals, nasty nemeses, and heinous hoodlums! NESA GEOGRAPHY ADVENTURE is a recreational geography program for kids of all ages, designed to inspire them to love learning about geography, mapping, and world culture and history.

LATIN, BEGINNER & INTERMEDIATE

Learn the language of the ages!  This ancient tongue from Rome of bygone days remains alive and fresh today, embedded in the vocabulary of contemporary English.  The class will teach beginning grammar and vocabulary, all while exposing the student to some fun stories about Pompeii in A.D. 79, about ancient Britain and Alexandria, and early Roman civilization.

Instructor for Math, Geography, and Latin: Nicholas Sterling

BEGINNING, INTERMEDIATE, and ADVANCED CHESS

Chess is a great game for kids to develop their mental and competitive prowess, and kids who learn to play chess have been shown to perform better in school and develop more socially stable relationships.  In the Beginner and Intermediate classes we will teach the basic moves as needed and cover simple tactics, such as forks, pins, skewers; and strategies, such as occupying key squares. In the Advanced class we will work on opening and endgame study, and getting students prepared for tournament and team play. Instructor: Steven Winer

COMPUTER PROGRAMMING

The fall/Winter programming for the 2013/2014 season will divide up into two sections, the beginner section will cover 2D gaming. The advanced section will cover 3D gaming and both sections will teach the  students the programming knowledge for each task, from DarkBASIC to Visual C++.

Both classes will concentrate on teamwork and production in class while at the same time providing homework to provide the student the background needed to contribute to class.  The purpose of the class is to teach kids how to program both mechanically and creatively while at the same time encouraging teamwork, as if the kids were adults working on a project.  In both classes the idea is to learn computer programming by doing and creating, giving the student a sense of accomplishment.

The courses will both teach kids to be fluent and flexible in the use of computer languages, tools and approaches they use solve a problem, as several tool solutions will be open to the advanced class.  Both classes require the student to have a minimum of a Windows 7 with a  Core i5 or better laptop.

Students enrolled in the basic program will learn how to use professional tools to learn the concepts behind computer sciences, while having fun creating video games, scenes and sounds.
Students enrolled in the advanced course may either be recommended to the advanced course through successful completion of the beginner course, or by passing a test if the student is coming from an outside program.  Students enrolled in the advanced program will  learn to create 3D games and animation.  We will be using professional game engines for the advanced section.

Parkour in MA integrates several disciplines; it could be termed as a sport, a hobby, and an art. Typically, Parkour is a learning session to navigate obstacles, and leveraging of one's body through public places. Several experts of Parkour, not only in MA but across the globe, believe that the techniques they learn through this sport are also useful in their daily lives, making them more skillful and confident dealing with obstacles spanning from disagreements in the work place to more personal emotional traumas.
