Thanks so much to the organizers of Wellesley High School’s annual Seminar Day for having Mr. Swellesley, Mrs. Swellesley and Swellesley Jr. all take part. WHS put together a great line-up, including seminars on everything from the Peace Corps to Inside Google to Life in Prison.
Mrs. Swellesley congregated with students who framed photos of art displays made recently at the Wellesley dump’s Give and Take area, and discussed the ins and outs of applying for arts grants (we’ll have more on this project in the weeks ahead).
Mr. Swellesley and Swellesley Jr. showed students How to Yo-Yo like a Cool Kid. We mixed in a bit of yo-yo history and then went hands on with displays and techniques. So parents, don’t be surprised if your kids suddenly go back in time and start finagling with yo-yos. They’ve learned the basics. (The video below really heats up about 1 minute in!)
