E2427: All About Dinosaurs! in Sprout Spring 17 (Feb. 11 - 25, 2017)
Do you love dinosaurs? Of course you do! So come join us while we learn about some of the most amazing creatures to ever walk, swim, and fly on Earth! While dinosaurs dominated Earth for over 165 million years. Humans have been around for only 2 million years. That’s a lot of dinosaur knowledge to get through, and we aim to share all the coolest bits, from Titanosaur, which weighed more much than 1000 human adults, to the giant shark Megalodon that ate the equivalent of an entire elephant each week.

S802: Brilliant Black Holes in Resonance Fall 13 (Nov. 16, 2013)
This class will be focused on active galactic nuclei (AGN), or the extremely luminous centers of galaxies. These centers are composed of supermassive black holes and their accompanying accretion disks. Students will have the opportunity to learn more about these strange cosmic phenomena, how to identify them, and how their activity affects other processes in the universe.
