Non-traditional classes planned by state gifted education group

A program called Minds in Motion: Fun for Students, will take place Saturday, March 15, at Jonathan Law High School, 20 Lansdale Avenue.

Minds in Motion is an afternoon of workshops designed to engage students with hands-on, fast-paced, interactive, high-interest workshops on topics not available in the traditional classroom.

Topics include Amazing Water Wonders; Illustration: Telling Stories with Pictures; Clay Whistle Workshop; Catapault Concepts; Engineering a Kaleidoscope using Light and Mirrors, and Lego Mindstorms Robotics.

In addition, parents attend special-interest workshops on topics related to raising high potential children, interact with vendors, receive free literature, and interact with other parents, all for free.

Minds in Motion is put on by the Connecticut Association for the Gifted (CAG) and The Milford Education Foundation (MEF) to benefit students in kindergarten through 8th grade.
