Baylor University's Center for Community Learning and Enrichment has released its schedule of the popular Super Saturday classes for students from preschool through 11th grade.

The first Super Saturdays will be held Oct. 5, and will continue on Nov. 23, Dec. 7, Jan. 25, Feb. 15, March 29 and April 26.

Four-year-olds through kindergartners are invited to explore the environment by using the five senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell in "Orange You Sweet," which will be held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Baylor Piper Child Development Center at 315 Washington Ave. The instructor for the course is Loretta Rudd.

First- through third-graders will spend the morning as "Victorian"-age children in "Before Blue Jeans and Reeboks," which will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 5, at the historic Fort House, 503 S. Fourth St. Students will discover the kinds of clothing children wore in the past, design their own Victorian hats, play games and taste "teatime" treats. Marsha Hendrix will lead the class.

"What a Relief!" will allow fourth- and fifth-grade students to use their hands, clay, clay tools, mixing techniques and colorants to transform an image into plaster. The class, under the direction of Lisa Davis, will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 5, in room 215 of the Draper Academic Building.

The McLane Student Life Center is the site of "Rocks and Racquets," a class for sixth-through 11th-graders from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. Students will spend the morning climbing the rock, learning to play racquetball and ping-pong, swimming, or any of the other available activities. The class is led by Chris Sembritzky and SLC staff.

Sessions for pre-school through kindergarten are $15. Classes for first graders and up are $30, which includes all lab materials and facilities fees. Registration is limited. For more information, call (254) 710-2171 or visit
