Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment will continue its Super Saturday educational programs Saturday, Jan. 20, with several classes designed to stimulate thinking and make learning fun for students in first through ninth grades.

The first classes of the new year begin with the "wacky" art class "What a Mess!" for students in first through third grades. Instructor Majka Mitchell will show children how to create art from objects found inside and outside the home. The class will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in room 109 of the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus.

Fourth and fifth graders can participate in "Dreams, Designs and Dimensions 3-D: Puzzling Pets and Jupiter Juice Bugs," in which students will look at tessellation (or mosaic) shapes to make their own real or imaginary "tessie" pet. Led by Dr. Mary Nied Phillips, the course will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in Draper 108.

"The Art and Science of Food," which includes a meal prepared by students, as well as instruction on the dining code of behavior, will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in room 111 of the Mary Gibbs Jones Family and Consumer Sciences Building next to Collins Hall. The class, for sixth and seventh graders, will be led by Dr. Janelle Walter, associate professor of family and consumer sciences.

Eighth and ninth graders can learn about "Claymation," which will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the Draper 200 computer lab. Educator and technology specialist Teri Lloyd will show students how to make their clay figures come to life through the use of digital cameras, Spin Objects software and their imagination.

The cost for all sessions is $30, which includes lab, materials and facility fees. The next Super Saturday classes will be held Feb. 3.
