Physics:
I would like two assistants (or could have three if there is enough interest) who would each oversee a small group experiment and discussion. I would also like the assistants to bring in some common household items for their small group (things like a flashlight, candle, lighter, etc.)--if they have them.

Mythology:
I am going to need somebody who is really creative and not afraid to jump in and help kids brainstorm. In the mythology class, the kids are going to be working independently, but it's going to take adults to really help them work in teams and form ideas.

Art Appreciation:
I would like someone comfortable using a digital projector or laptop for displaying images while I teach about the art.

Playwriting:
I am going to need somebody who is really creative and not afraid to jump in and help kids brainstorm. For playwriting, I need somebody who can help with brainstorming etc., but who also has a lot of energy.

Animal Tales:
I would love it if my assistant could assist with craft preparations (cutting out items beforehand, etc.) and/or lead the craft activities (I already have them planned, but another person could be in charge of actually leading the projects with the children).

Science:
My plan is to have as many hands on activities as possible. So someone who would like to jump in and help out with either activities or helping me plan activities would be good.

Backyard Ballistics:
I primarily need two assistants as extra eyes to make sure everyone is staying safe. I'll also need them to make sure that the kids are following directions carefully on a couple of the projects so we don't have any "accidents".
