 Summer Class Promotes Academics

This is the second year the pair have brandished their wands and donned their thinking caps to research countless magic books and science experiments.

"We totally rely on kids' imagination," Boazman says. "These kids are doing math, science, reading, and writing, but they don't notice because they're having so much fun."

"You just pick a persona and try to react to a given scenario as if you were that character." For Renae, a... student who goes by "Melody Kilroy" when she's playing Diagon Alley, gaming is a chance to dress up, let her imagination run, and escape into a bit of fantasy.
