Powerpoint Roulette (8th Grade-Class of 2020)

Powerpoint Roulette is a game where a person presents a slideshow to an audience without having ever seen the contents of the slides they are presenting. It’s fun for the presenter and hilarious for the audience! Create a funny 10-slide slideshow and have someone else present it for you. Topics can be from “Real or Fake: Are Birds Really Just CIA Surveillance Drones?”, “The History of the World, Part 1”, “USY Regions and their Animal Counterparts”, “Grandma Fran’s Cheesecake Recipe”, or anything else you can think of!.

Wednesdays July 8th, July 22nd, August 5th 2-3 PM

Mindful Photography

Throughout this class, 8th graders-Class of 2020 will gain tools to create with a focus on photography through the practice of mindfulness. We will practice how to take our surroundings in, look at family, friends, and community anew, and connect with something greater than ourselves (taking part in Tikkun Olam). By the end of each session, each participant will have a visual creation that expresses different skills and topics we learn. You will have the opportunity to share your creations on the USY website.

Program Date(s):
Mondays (July 6, 13, 20, 27, August 3, 10) from 4-5 PM
