Middle School "Speak Easy" 3-Day Camp

Public speaking is a life skill that builds self-confidence and would make a difference in all their upcoming project based learning presentations (and there are many!)

Join us for this fun and hands-on "Speak Easy" camp.  

Over the 3 consecutive days, students will learn techniques in creating their presentation material, preparing themselves mentally and physically before any presentation.  They will receive constructive feedback from their peers.  They will also receive a copy of their presentation on video for reference.  

They will finish the class with more confidence and feeling taller walking into their next presentation!
