The Biology and Physics of Optics in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)
The human eye is amazingly complex, yet surprisingly inefficient. In this class we will explore the biological principles that underly visual sensation and perception with brief applications to physics (lenses) and comparative anatomy.


The Cardiovascular System in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)
This class will focus on the anatomy and physiology of the heart, blood, and blood vessels. We will learn about blood composition, how the heart functions as a pump, hemodynamics, and regulation by the central nervous system.


Basics of Signal Processing in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Have you ever wondered how audio and video are processed? How images are generated and compressed? This course will provide a brief mathematical introduction to signal processing. In class examples will range from biological modeling to music production. We will also briefly explore computational techniques to generate random signals using MATLAB.


Introduction to Physiology in Sprout Spring 19 (Feb. 16 - Mar. 02, 2019)
The human body is amazingly complex. In this course, we will briefly explore the brain, musculoskeletal, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems to develop a better understanding of and appreciation for basic anatomy and physiology.


Beginner Tap Dancing Class in Sprout Spring 18 (Feb. 17 - Mar. 03, 2018)
Fun class for beginning or experienced tap dancers. Will start with a warm up and then we will go into a combination!
