Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment will begin another year of Super Saturdays on Saturday, Oct. 28, with four classes designed to stimulate thinking and make learning fun for students in first through ninth grades.

"Goo, Gunk and Goop" will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 28 in room 215 of the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus. Designed for first through third graders, the class will show children how to create everything from silly putty to slime while participating in scientific experiments. Majka Mitchell, a teacher of gifted and talented students, will serve as instructor.

Fourth and fifth graders can take part in "Dreams, Designs and Dimensions I: Colorful Collage Creatures," a class in which students will learn a variety of paper painting techniques as they create their own "creatures." Instructor Dr. Mary Nied Phillips also will help students explore mood, colors and shapes by designing patterned half-masks. The class will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 28 in Draper room 108 on the Baylor campus.

Teri Lloyd, an educator and technology specialist, will instruct sixth and seventh graders in the art of "Claymation" from 8:30 a.m. to noon Oct. 28 in the Draper 200 computer lab on the Baylor campus. Students will learn how to make clay figures come to life using digital cameras, Spin Objects software and their imagination.

"Lights, Camera, Action" will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 28 in Draper room 207 on the Baylor campus. Eighth and ninth graders will create their own characters and then produce and perform a musical production using all characters in front of a live audience. Belinda Honea, musician and theater director, will serve as instructor.

All classes are $30, which includes all lab, materials and facilities fees. For registration information, call the Center for Community Learning and Enrichment at (254) 710-2171.
