Gears, literature, scientific breakthroughs...Open the Cabinet of Curiosities that is the Victorian era in this workshop that explores the full range of human endeavor (Science Technology Engineering Art Math).
You’ll enjoy hands-on encounters with Victorian mechanical innovation, take a Victorian approach to exploring the natural world, and experience the literature and history of the period alongside university faculty. Then take a look at how contemporary re-workings of that approach have made their way into science fiction, art, and technological innovation. As a bonus: you'll also learn how arts and humanities degrees can help you build professional careers in everything from the intelligence community to the financial industry.
This camp may appeal to: students interested in science fiction, film history, literature, natural history, philosophy, and Victorian-era history; aspiring attorneys, writers, inventors, film-makers, intelligence analysts, journalists, and artists.
