Countdown to Dickinson Registration Closing








Class A - Camping 101
In this course, we will learn about all the fun activities you can do while camping. We will set up a tent and learn how to set up camp. We will learn about all of the activities you can do in a park such as birding, hiking, wildlife viewing, track/animal identification, and how to set up a campfire. We will include examples of birding books and some furs so you can interact with the outdoors while being indoors!
Class B - Making Moola From Agriculture!
Students will be introduced to the use of budgets to determine potential net income for an enterprise using agricultural examples. How products are sold for money, how this money is then used to pay production expenses and how the remaining is considered “Profit” (net income). Exercise should provide students with an appreciation of how money is made in production agriculture using a tool that can apply to many other business endeavors.
Class C - The Game of Life – Playing With Your Future
The Career Quest Board Game will encourage students to: practice being a smart saver, be a smart spender, learn how much education is required for different careers, and realize the choices made today will affect the future.
Class D - Biotechnology and Agriculture
Students will learn about what Biotechnology is and how it is used in agriculture. Also, they will get to do a hands-on project that extracts DNA from a pea.
Class E - Lessons About Your Money!
The more you know about how to make money, how to save money, and how to spend money, the less likely it is that you will have money problems as an adult. Do you know people who never seem to have enough money? If you don’t want to live that way, listen up. We have some good information to share with you today. Students will also get the opportunity to look at and learn about foreign currency.
Class F - Physical Fitness Class
The group will be taken through a short fitness class that includes warm up, physical exercises, and a cool down. We will then discuss what fitness is and how it relates to everyone, some professions that include physical fitness, and how nutrition can relate.
Class G - Being a Firefighter
Did you know that a firefighter responds to all calls such as: fire, hazardous waste, EMS calls, vehicle extraction, confined space emergencies and high angle rope rescue, just to mention a few. In this class, you will learn about the educational requirements, job skills, and physical requirements needed to be a firefighter. One lucky student will get to dress in firefighter gear!
