Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment will continue its Super Saturday educational programs Saturday, March 24, with several classes designed to stimulate thinking and make learning fun for students in first through ninth grades.

First through third graders will discover and explore the many interesting facets of the insect world in "What's Bugging You?" The class, led by entomologist Becky Clarkson, will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in room 215 of the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus.

"Cartooning" is available for fourth and fifth graders from 9 a.m. to noon in Draper room 129. Educator and artist Haylee Simpkins will show kids how to develop their own cartoon characters, as well as how to draw the old favorites.

Dr. Mary Ruth Smith, associate professor of art at Baylor, will lead "Printmaking Potpourri" for sixth and seventh grade students from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in room 161 of the Lewis Fine Arts Building on the Baylor campus. Students will explore the making of patterns, designs and detailed pictures using potato and vegetable printing, stenciling and monoprints, as well as more complex processes, such as screen printing and carved blocks.

Eighth and ninth graders will learn what it means to be a leader in "Leadership Basics 101," which will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in the McLane Student Life Center on the Baylor campus. Staff from Baylor's health, education and wellness office will show young people how to sharpen their teamwork skills, communication skills and their ability to mediate conflicts.

The cost for all sessions is $30, which includes lab, materials and facility fees. The final Super Saturday classes will be held April 28.
