Lead First Name: Greg/Jeff
Class Name: Muons Game Theory
Summary: This week we had our first presenters on Game Theory. “the BOiS™” did a great job explaining co-operative / non-cooperative games and theory. They also touched on the “Nash Equilibrium” and how it relates. There were many good questions in the Q and A portion, and a lively discussion among the whole group during the follow up. Discussions included; When to separate the game and the “platform” and can a team game be non-cooperative? Next week, the topic will be symmetrical / non-symmetrical gaming.

Class Name: Group Gathering
Summary: Last group gathering we caught a glimpse of the spectacular artistic, musical, scientific, and creative talents of some wonderful kids during show and tell. We “Ooohed”, we “Ahhhed”, and we “Wowed”. We also reinforced some basic sign language skills by signing “Please”, “Sit”, and “Thank you”. Good times.

Summary: The second week with the Neutrons went well. We tried a story game called “Fortunately, Unfortunately.” Most of the children liked it and were creative. a couple were board with waiting their turn and one was nervous when it came to his turn to add to the story. Some of the younger children are still learning to take turns and listen to others. It is good practice but we might not play that game for awhile.We continued the journal project from last week. They finished their cover pages. We did another “Mad Libs” and decided the younger ones are board by it. After that we read a book, “Where the Wild Things Are”. This went very well! Even though most of them had heard the story before and are reading more difficult books, they still got into the story and we were able to talk about imagination.

Summary: The Neutrons (age 6-9) spent the first week of WW getting to know one another. We started with a game that gave each child a couple opportunities to share a favorite thing, color, food, animal or something. Through this game we discovered that all the children a fairly good readers.We did a couple rounds of “Mad Libs” after the game. The two oldest children enjoyed writing the funny word choices in the blanks but it lost the attention of most of the other children.

We started a project of making a journal. We made the cover pages by using foam letters to write their names and things they like best. It was great to see some of the things they enjoy doing. Almost all of them like reading. Some like painting and art. Others like sports. Everyone seemed to enjoy the project and they wanted to continue working on it next week.
