If you haven't been following what the CSI Zero Robotics group is doing here's an updated! They recently baked cookies in some wicked cool solar ovens, discovered how much power a small 5w solar panel can produce (amazing), and experimented concentrating Infrared energy onto various materials with a large Fresnel lens.

If it's been a while since you've updated your CSI Directory photo or you don't have one yet, stop by room 248 of the Student Union building between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 15. Doug Maughan will take faculty/staff photos - no appointment is necessary and it takes only a minute or two unless there's a waiting line. Doug will also do outside photos at the ice cream social between noon and 1:30 Wednesday, Aug. 17 at the center of campus.

We still need help filling multiple courses this fall semester! Help your fellow faculty by suggesting some of the following: 

GNED 101:

 

For more information about GNED classes contact Clark Draney acdraney@csi.edu or 208-732-6810.  

COMM 209: 

This is a MWF, face-to-face class that happens from 9:00-9:50 am in the Hepworth building (and is taught by Tiffany Seeley-Case) 

E mployers, teachers, and others  say we need to develop critical thinking skills in our students (and many studies back this up as to the high demand in the workforce for effective critical thinking skills) and, as luck would have it, we teach a class in this very thing! Who knew? How lucky is that? Course Description and Goals:

Critical Thinking and Argumentation is designed to introduce students to the basic principles of critical thinking, reasoning, informal logic, and argumentation, and to help students apply those principles in both their personal and public communication. 

This course has four broad goals: 
  1. To help students become more analytical and critical as a consumer of the discourse of others.
  2. To teach students to recognize flawed reasoning and equip students with strategies for dealing with flawed reasoning.
  3. To help students become more adept and more ethical in constructively advancing and defending views in both public and personal settings.
  4. To help students become more understanding and tolerant of those with whom they disagree.
COMM 209 is a required course for communication majors, but can benefit everyone! In particular, we recommend COMM 209 to pre-law, political science and criminal justice majors as well as to English majors with an emphasis in persuasion and/or persuasive writing. Further, majors in all of the sciences can greatly benefit from critical reasoning skills. 

For more information about COMM 209 contact Tiffany Seeley-Case  at tseeley@csi.edu or  208-732-6779.

ART 103-251:

KidsSummer Workshops for Kids at the Herrett Center
The Herrett Center for Arts and Science is launching a series of nine fun, low cost, summer workshops for kids as young as six years old. All sessions will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

August 3: Telescopes. Ever since the telescope was invented in the 1600s, people have used it to gaze at the stars. In this workshop, you will get to build your own working telescope to take home with you. Join us after the workshop to look through the Herrett Center's giant telescope in the Centennial Observatory. Ages 6 and up. Children under 8 must have a parent present. $15 per participant.

August 10: Metalworking. From central Mexico throughout South America, native people used gold and other precious metals to create jewelry, masks, and other decorative and ritual objects. In this workshop, you will get to test out an ancient metalworking technique called repousse (re-poo-say) to create your own metal artwork. Ages 8 and up. $15 per participant.

August 17: Hoop and Dart Game. Try your hand at this classic Native American game using traditional materials to construct a set of prehistoric lawn darts. Students will build a set of corncob darts and a willow hoop, then learn the rules of this fun pastime on the Herrett Center front lawn. Ages 8 and up. $10 per participant.

Spaces will be limited in each workshop to ensure a fun experience for all participants. Payment must be received at the time of registration. Adults may not sign up without a child. For information, call 208-732-6655 or drop by the Herrett Center at the College of Southern Idaho.
