    Contact: Briana Cahill   609-737-2610   bcahill@mcl.org
   

RoboAha TM is a new program that uniquely blends cutting-edge robotics with cultural and communication studies.  It aims to equip children with engineering sense, cultivate their cross-cultural perspectives and global mindedness, and enhance their critical thinking, writing and presentation skills.  Special projects are developed to help children achieve greater intercultural communication competence while catering to their interest in robotics.  

Robotics Class - Children will explore the field of robotics using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics sets.  They will learn the basics of mobile systems, motors, sensors and programming by designing and building different robots.  These robots are themed robots for applying and understanding the social/cultural concepts learned via Intercultural Awareness Classes (see separate event for this).

Note: Children should consider taking BOTH robotics and intercultural awareness classes in order to get the most benefit.  For the robotics part, it is strongly recommended that children take ALL five classes, as it is designed to progressivley increment the level.  For the intercultural awareness part, children can take any one or all five of the classes.

Space is limited! Online registration is required.  Please sign up for each class separately.

Legal planning for seniors can be complicated but it doesn’t have to be. It can start with three simple documents: a Will, a Power of Attorney, and a document to handle healthcare decision making. Not having these documents in place can be devastating for your financial affairs, not to mention a drain on your family in a time of crisis. This presentation by Carl Archer, an attorney at Mercer Elder Law, will give you essential information to use when you contact your trusted advisors to get your own plan in place. There will also be an explanation of the VA Aid and Attendance benefit, which can provide a veteran and his/her spouse anywhere from $1,100 a month to more than $2,000 a month in tax-free assistance. This seminar is designed to prepare attendees for the next chapter of their lives, and to help avoid many common planning traps and pitfalls. Registration is suggested.

Theeb  (United Arab Emirates, Quatar, Jordan and United Kingdom - 2014)

Nominated for the 2016 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. In 1916, while war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb ("Wolf") in a traditional Bedouin community that is isolated by the vast, unforgiving desert. The brothers' quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them to a water well located along the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. So as not to dishonor his recently deceased father, Hussein agrees to lead them on the long and treacherous journey. The young, mischievous Theeb secretly chases after his brother, but the group soon find themselves trapped amidst threatening terrain riddled with Ottoman mercenaries, Arab revolutionaries, and outcast Bedouin raiders. Naji Abu Nowar's powerful and assured directorial debut, set in the land of Lawrence of Arabia, is a wondrous "Bedouin Western" about a boy who, in order to survive, must become a man and live up to the name his father gave him. 100 min. Arabic with English subtitles.

RoboAha TM is a new program that uniquely blends cutting-edge robotics with cultural and communication studies.  It aims to equip children with engineering sense, cultivate their cross-cultural perspectives and global mindedness, and enhance their critical thinking, writing and presentation skills.  Special projects are developed to help children achieve greater intercultural communication competence while catering to their interest in robotics.  

Intercultural Awareness Class - Children will take a cross-cultural journey by watching a variety of foreign and domestic age-appropriate films.  Through guided discussion and self-reflection, they will gain insights about and appreciation for their own and other cultural groups, increase their self-awareness and self-reflexivity about their cultural identities, develop their ability to communicate effectively with people from diverse cultures, and think critically about the dynamics of intercultural relationships.  (See also Robotics Classes under a separate event.)

Note: Children should consider taking BOTH robotics and intercultural awareness classes in order to get the most benefit.  For the robotics part, it is strongly recommended that children take ALL five classes, as it is designed to progressivley increment the level.  For the intercultural awareness part, children can take any one or all five of the classes.

Space is limited! Online registration is required.  Please sign up for each class separately. Grades 1 - 4.

RoboAha TM is a new program that uniquely blends cutting-edge robotics with cultural and communication studies.  It aims to equip children with engineering sense, cultivate their cross-cultural perspectives and global mindedness, and enhance their critical thinking, writing and presentation skills.  Special projects are developed to help children achieve greater intercultural communication competence while catering to their interest in robotics.  

Robotics Class - Children will explore the field of robotics using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics sets.  They will learn the basics of mobile systems, motors, sensors and programming by designing and building different robots.  These robots are themed robots for applying and understanding the social/cultural concepts learned via Intercultural Awareness Classes (see separate event for this).

Note: Children should consider taking BOTH robotics and intercultural awareness classes in order to get the most benefit.  For the robotics part, it is strongly recommended that children take ALL five classes, as it is designed to progressivley increment the level.  For the intercultural awareness part, children can take any one or all five of the classes.

Space is limited! Online registration is required.  Please sign up for each class separately.
