One ... the harsh sound of bare feet slamming into the wood floor interrupts the cadence . . . two . . . one, two . . . witness the grace and violence of karate. Many white and yellow belts are in the class, a few green and brown, even a few black.
It's cold on the roof of Weniger Hall but, the sky is clear and that's good for an astronomy class. Looking through the eyepiece, Saturn and its rings sit in one corner of the darkness. The night air gets colder but, another glimpse of the far-off planet is worth it.
"I started coming to class just as a way of getting in shape." Others agreed.
"Most guys start coming to class thinking that in three weeks they can go out and kill somebody. But, like now. I've come to think of it more as an art form." One . . . two . . . one, two . . .
The concept of the Experimental College as a collage of learning and experience, is a good and an accurate description. Some classes fail through lack of participation and interest, however the majority become exciting, informative and enjoyable for everyone involved.

Clay, jewelry, geodesic domes and foods were focal points of many Experimental College classes.
A ball of clay on the potter's wheel took shape with the guidance of sensitive and patient hands. Every movement changed the character of the medium. Finally, a perfectly symmetrical form was created.
On the other side of the Craft Shop, an Experimental College jeweler demonstrates his craft. Creating a ring with the aid of a torch and the brilliant mineral. It seems as if the form is born from the flame itself. The ring emerges simple and perfect.
Other gatherings find the geodesic dome a topic. Buckminster Fuller's innovative theories and dome designs generate an interest and curiosity that has resulted in the formation of an Experimental College class and eventual structure of a dome.
Good food always brings people together and along with the food classes in coffee tasting, edible plants and micro-wave cooking, the Experimental College sponsors some extra-curricular events.
Flundreds of desserts cover MU 105 tables. Better yet, each portion costs only five cents. That's enough to tempt any dessert lover.
You say you're an Asian food buff? The Mom's Weekend Asian cooking demonstration is for you. You can even taste the finished products and join in the cooking.
With the addition of these events the Experimental College is allowing more students, staff and community to experiment and experience learning. By combining the efforts of an interesting facilitator and interested learners. Experimental College classes have many times been successful in communicating new skills and ideas.
