MCLA's primary focus for faculty is on teaching. But the 83 full-time faculty members who teach there are also publishing books and articles, conducting research, and heading unique, groundbreaking projects that combine academic disciplines.
Designed for students ages 9-12 in grades 4-7, this camp is for students who are interested in science and robotics. Campers will participate in science activities and experiments and use LEGO Mindstorm RCX and NXTs to create robots.
This all-day event will feature a student poster session, individual presentations, and group work that encompasses the time and dedication MCLA's students have put into their academic endeavors in the past academic year.
MCLA will confer honorary doctorates to former North Adams Mayor and current Berkshire United Way President and CEO Thomas W. Bernard, and outgoing MCLA Trustee Susan Gold, a longtime MCLA trustee and community member.
Written by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, "Intimate Apparel" was the winner of the 2004 Steinberg New Play Award, New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award is directed by Berkshire native and co-founder of the Berkshire Fringe, Sara Katzoff.
This is the third iteration of The Mind's Eye's Faculty Works-in-Progress Colloquium series, in which MCLA faculty members share their current research or creative projects and benefit from questions and discussion.
