Experience: She has two years of experience volunteering at a summer camp, and took care of about 15 kids, primarily working with 4 to 13 year old girls. Her goal was to make sure that the kids had a fun and to ensure their safety. She has also been a sitter for a few children in her neighborhood and loves taking care of kids.
Hours: Saturday and Sunday mornings Some weekday evenings
Experience: For the past 23 years, she’s tutored kids of all ages in a variety of subjects. She is also a proud mom to two kids, ages 19 and 12. She has provided foster respite care to kids ages 5-8. For 3 years, she was a reading buddy for 2nd-5th graders.
Hours: 9am - 11am Tuesday
9am - 11am Friday
Experience: She has been passionate about working with children from a very young age, and started volunteering in her freshman year of high school as a biomedical instructor, teaching children from low-income neighborhoods. During her time as a volunteer, she was able to educate through many different health experiments and teach not only what goes on in the body, but why it is important. As she got more involved, she began creating lesson plans to better engage the children. She also just recently started her own children's day camp where she is able to work with children outside of a classroom setting, teaching them important values through different activities that require communication and teamwork.
Kalyssa - Chief of Biscuit Dunking, Alchemy Master
Experience: Kalyssa has younger siblings, so she grew up watching them, and coaches younger teams.
Vernon - Brogrammer
Hours: 9am - 5pm Daily
Experience: Vernon has worked within all grade levels, helping students in reading, math, science, and language arts. He also worked in Japan as an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher for the local high school and college. He’s extremely passionate about creating a learning environment that allows your students to flourish and become the brightest stars they can be.
Vineeta - Chief of Biscuit Dunking, Alchemy Master
Experience: Vineeta, or as some call her, Vin, has an MBA in marketing and worked in corporate for about 8 years, but took a break to take care of her 2 wonderful kids, who are now in middle school. Her goal with kids is to make sure they have fun while staying safe. She has tutored both of her kids and looks forward to helping your kids reach their academic goals or keep them occupied while you work. She has previous experience as a sitter and has tutored elementary kids in a variety of subjects.
Our Virtual Sitters and Tutors are science experts and gifted scholars who have either taught science, work in that profession or are honors students. Science categories include conducting cool science experiments, cooking your child's favorite foods and coding exercises for programs such as Minecraft.
To build on these skills, Intellectual Practice Learning offers MiniTours that give students VIP access to virtual webinars hosted by STEM focused college campuses and national businesses such as ice sculpting, glass blowing, car and airplane facilities that are willing to dive deep into discussions about how science comes into play with their daily activities.

Technology is constantly widening the capabilities of filmmakers; with the help of technology and software, the impossible becomes possible in the world of film. In many cases, the audience is not aware of the digitally produced effects in a given scene. Sometimes, even actors themselves are created digitally. In both live action and animated films, visual effects generated by computer algorithms play an important if not vital role, so much so that it may soon be possible to create entire films without utilizing actual people.

Scientists are playing increasingly larger roles in film production by offering their knowledge to make films more realistic from a scientific perspective and to educate audiences while simultaneously improving the story being told within a given film. In order to make films that contain phenomena such as time travel stay as close to reality as possible, the help of physicists is often implemented. Apart from helping out behind the scenes, scientists have inspired filmmakers to include more STEM-related roles within their films with the goal of inspiring younger audiences. Source
Though filmmakers often forgo abiding the laws of physics and other scientific principles when creating films due to budget constraints and other practical limitations, physics can play a vital role in the creation of extraordinary yet credible films. One major aspect of film creation in which physics is largely involved is CGI, computer generated imagery, which allows for animated films to look realistic. The depiction of scientists and scientific concepts on screen can also be largely improved and made more true to life with the help of those actually working in the field. Source
