June 17, 2012 (Rancho San Diego) -- Every summer the Heritage of the Americas Museum, located on the campus of Cuyamaca College in Rancho San Diego, has week-long classes for students going into fifth through ninth grades. All of the classes are taught by retired school teachers. The cost for each five-day class is only $50.00. For more information, you can call the Museum at 619-670-5194 or visit the web site at www.cuyamaca.edu/museum.
The classes at the Museum are very unique, fun, and educational. The first two sessions are called Survivor: Pioneer Skills in the Computer World. This class teaches students things that they won’t learn sitting in front of a computer. They’ll build a model shelter, make fire by friction, and rig and lift a weight using a rope and pulleys, and more. The list of activities goes on and on and the students always have a great time.
