Did you know that Mayans developed calendar systems, hieroglyphic writing, and the science of astronomy?  Join us as we learn about Mayan civilization, including their customs, counting system, architecture and more!  We will look at how the Mayans adapted to their physical environment and were affected by these adaptations. We will also explore several theories as to why this thriving civilization suddenly seemed to disappear. By the end of the class, you will be able to teach others about Mayan civilization through your own original game or brochure.

About Your Extraordinary Saturday (YES)

For 1st – 4th Grade Students

A New Adventure Every Weekend

MITY's program for elementary students enables inquisitive, high achieving 1st - 4th grade students to continue learning outside of the traditional classroom.  Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting.  While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
