X234: High Performance Driving: Racing Theory and Technique in Splash Spring 2018 (Feb. 24, 2018)
Part lecture, part discussion, this class teaches situational awareness that will make students faster on a track and safer on the street. It is taught by a Sports Car Club of America racing driver. Topics include seating position, vision, determining the fastest route through a corner, and maximizing grip. The goal is to empower students to become more skilled and more alert drivers by teaching them how to direct their focus.


X128: Beat your Friends at Scrabble in Splash Spring 2016 (Feb. 27, 2016)
Years ago I read a Scrabble strategy guide that blew my mind. Almost overnight, my scores shot up by 50%. In this crash course, I attempt to condense that book into a one-hour session. The quick tips I will teach have the potential to transform your game. You'll never look at a Scrabble board the same way again. Topics covered include: the power of two-letter words, prioritizing tiles, balancing your rack, finding "bingos," maximizing use of bonus squares, strategic board positioning, and more!
