Youth Programming

Youth Band

UW-Washington County Youth Band strives to support and be a complement to local music programs by giving students another outlet to hone their craft of musical performance. Along with traditional band repertoire, the Youth Band will explore other genres like jazz, rock/pop, world music, and creating opportunities for students to create and compose their own music! Geared towards middle school level students (6-8th grade), the youth band will further students' musical education, create opportunities for performance, build confidence and character, and inspire students to reach heights they may not have thought possible!

Science Labs

Geology Labs:

Session 1: Rock Cycle:  We will simulate the rock cycle with pieces of white and dark chocolate instead of actual rocks. Students melt, crystallize, erode, lithify and metamorphose a single small block of chocolate. Along the way students complete questions and compare the products of each step with actual rocks.

Session 2: Glacial Landforms: Students will identify continental glacial landforms in aerial photographs, maps and Google Earth. As we study the landforms, the students will develop hypotheses for the formation of the most common glacial landforms. We will finish the session with a hike through Ridge Run Park and Camp Silverbrook, Girl Scout camp to observe the glacial landforms.
