Soaring Eagles

NEW THIS YEAR! We are excited to introduce this special program for rising 5th - 8th Graders. Soaring Eagles meet from 12:00 - 3:00 pm each day of the week during the first and last two weeks of Summer Academy. To register for a full day, simply combine a Rising Eagle morning session with a Soaring Eagle session!  


Week 1: Mugshots

June 5 - 9

Betsy Dailey

Picture it: your face on a mug! Make a sculpted face in clay on a functional, food-safe vessel to keep and use. Explore artistic elements of basic face structure, conveying expression, and sculpting using additive and subtractive methods. Previous experience with clay modeling is useful but not necessary.


Week 2: Pixels & Plywood

June 12-16

Eric Sogard

Bring your favorite computer games to life this week during Pixels and Plywood! Explore the world of block games, including Minecraft and other biome and mod based games. Create your own 3D world online, then build a model of a world with your friends in Day School’s iLab using wood and other building materials.


Week 7: Lights, Camera, Action!

July 17-21

Eric Sogard

Whether you were born to be a star or prefer to be behind the scenes, connect with friends for a fun-filled week, and take your video skills to the next level. From generating ideas to writing scripts, creating props, acting, editing, and producing, experience each step of the process and create memories to last a lifetime.


Week 8: Robotics

Gear up for an exciting week of robotics! Learn to build, control, and program using Lego Ev3 Robotics. Join other middle schoolers in immersive experiences from bot sumo to challenging course designs, all with guidance to persevere to success in a fun atmosphere. All experience levels welcome.
