Class List and Descriptions

Classes subject to change. Class selections are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Class A: Being a Police Officer

This presentation is an opportunity for students to learn about law enforcement and what it’s like to be a Police Officer in the City of Minot. 19

Class B: Lessons About Your Money

Money plays an important role in our lives – we’ll discuss how to make it, how to keep it, how to spend it, and what money around the world looks like. We will get to look at currency from all over the globe. 19

Class C: Operation Life Saver

Nearly every three hours, someone is struck by a train in the U.S. During this presentation, students will learn the skills they need to safely walk, bike, skate or ride near the railroad tracks. Students will also learn where it’s safe to play, where it’s not, and what they need to do when they get to a crossing. 19

Class D: Money Smarts

Personal Finance – we will be discussing the responsibilities on how to earn money, save money, spend money, technology and protecting your identity. 19

Class E: Excuse Me! Yes, Please! No, Thank You!

Students will learn common manners using presentations as well as role plays.  19

Class F: Let the World Surround You at Roosevelt Park Zoo

Weather permitting, the instructor will bring a live ambassador animal with her. In addition, she will be bringing biofacts for viewing (small skeletons, skins and taxidermy mounts). 19

Class G: Making Light

Presenters begin by explaining the parts of a copper atom and how electricity is conducted across one. Then the presenters explain the construction of a switch, fuse, and light bulb. After students understand, presenters break them into groups, distributing materials, and walk them through how to build a small circuit from a battery. This segment ends with the students turning on a light bulb and describing how it is able to produce light.

(This class is limited to a capacity of 24 students per session, per presenter request.) 19

Class H: Technology in Tractors

Farming is more than just tractors and animals: there is a vast amount of technology involved that helps farmers be more efficient with the resources they have. In this class we’ll describe how farmers use maps and GPS technology to farm smarter. 19
