Summer Academy, Week 1, Day 1

Origins.

Today is the first full-day of the first week for our 2017 Summer Academy Program. We welcomed 49 teenagers to campus last night. After registering, some unpacking and eating dinner, the students and tutors jumped right into seminars on Prometheus Bound; this morning they had an hour and half discussion in language tutorials about William Blake’s “The Mental Traveller.”  BBQ on the soccer field followed with some time to relax and prepare for their afternoon class on Euclid’s Elements, “Definitions, Postulates, Common Notions.”  Tomorrow they get to delve into Wordsworth and Genesis.
