Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment will offer Super Saturday sessions Feb. 9 for Central Texas preschool through high school students.

Three-year-olds through kindergartners will celebrate Valentine's Day during the session "Love Is in the Air." Instructor Sandy Atkins will lead children in song, dance, cooking and reading about the holiday. The session will be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Baylor Piper Child Development Center, 315 Washington Ave.

In "Create It!," theater instructor Michael Nangle will show first- through third-graders how to use theater improvisation to create a short play that will be performed at the end of class. The session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Hooper-Schaefer dance movement studio on the Baylor campus.

Fourth- and fifth-graders will travel across the Pacific Ocean to Asia to learn about the fascinating people and culture of Japan. Led by Dr. Mary Nied Phillips, a gifted and talented teacher at Lake Waco Montessori, students will use all their senses in "Destination - Japan!" as they try on clothing, listen to music, experiment with toys and create traditional artworks like calligraphy, fans, Yakko kites and masks. The session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in room 108 of the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus.

Sixth- and seventh-graders will learn how to animate clay figures in "Claymation." Under the direction of technology specialist Teri Lloyd, students will use digital cameras, Spin Objects software and imagination, then watch their creations come to life. The session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in the room 200 computer lab in the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus.

Eighth- through 10th-graders will use dye and melted wax to create a unique design on fabric called "batik." Waco Montessori teacher Betty Myers will show students how to use batik to make gifts for family and friends. The session will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in room 215 of the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus.

All classes are $30, which includes all lab, materials and facilities fees. For more information, call (254) 710-2171 or visit www.baylor.edu/SOE/CCLE.
