Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment will offer Super Saturday sessions Jan. 26 to dispel winter blues for Central Texas preschool through high school students.

Three-year-olds through kindergartners will experience "Arctic Antics" as they discover winter life among the penguins, Eskimos and polar bears of the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Educational psychology doctoral candidate Loretta Rudd will transform the day at the Baylor University Piper Child Development Center, 315 Washington Ave., from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

Creating a multimedia presentation in "Hyperstudio Fun" will keep first through third graders busy using computer drawing tools, clip art and text to create a dazzling show. Waco teacher Bianca Ochoa, also an educational psychology doctoral student, will mentor the graphic artists from 9 a.m. until noon at Hillcrest Professional Development School, 4225 Pine Ave.

Fourth and fifth graders will use theater improvisations in "Create it!" to invent a short play to perform during class. Theater production doctoral candidate Michael Nagle will direct the play from 9 a.m. until noon at the Hooper-Schaefer Dance-Movement Studio on the Baylor campus.

"Destination Hawaii" will take sixth and seventh graders to warmer climes from 9 a.m. until noon in the Draper Academic Building on the Baylor campus. Dr. Mary Nied Phillips, a teacher at Lake Waco Montessori, will present the Hawaiian experience of people, plants, animals and volcanoes as the students play Polynesian games, learn music, taste Island treats and visually explore Volcanoes National Park.

Making clay figures come to life in "Claymation" will teach a new art form to eighth through tenth graders from 9 a.m. to noon in computer lab 200 of Baylor's Draper building. Doctoral student and technology specialist Teri Lloyd will instruct them in the use of digital cameras, Spin Objects software and imagination. At the end of class students will be able to watch their friends' movies and show their own.

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