P4528: The Science of Jurassic Park in Splash Fall 2015 (Nov. 07 - 08, 2015)
Why is a Brontosaurus simply wrong? What's so special about the La Brea Tar Pits? Are organisms that have been dead for millions of years really that interesting? The real question: Who hasn't always wanted to know more about dinosaurs and fossils? Come and fulfill your childhood dream of learning the basics of paleontology, mistakes Steven Spielberg made in Jurassic Park, and more! Why? Because dinosaurs are cool.


S4529: Divorced, Beheaded, Died in Splash Fall 2015 (Nov. 07 - 08, 2015)
Treason! Affairs! Murder! Who changes the religious hierarchy of England permanently just to call off a marriage? King Henry VIII does. This redheaded, temperamental monarch of medieval England might seem like an obscure historical figure, but in fact he lived a very interesting life. He married six times and personally beheaded two of his wives, all in an attempt to have a male son. This course will primarily cover the lives (and deaths) of Henry VIII and his six wives with plenty of violence, plotting, and drama in a storytelling fashion. We will also touch on the political goings-on of western Europe at the time as they become relevant to the story. The best part? It’s 100% true!

R3831: Meet the Greeks in Splash Fall 2014 (Nov. 08 - 09, 2014)
Which family had incest, drama, plotting, and murder? No, we're not talking about the Lannisters from Game of Thrones -- the original twisted family dynamic came from the Olympians of Greek mythology. This course will introduce you to some of the most famous, essential myths of ancient Greek mythology, giving a whole new depth to classic and modern literature alike. You'll be amazed at how many stories reference these classic tales, and we will touch on the real-life historical events of the era as they become relevant. So whether you're a fan of all things mythical, or just a fan of Percy Jackson, this course is definitely for you! Brace yourselves: the gods are coming.
