Interim: A Week of Inspired and Experiential Learning

Every February, students get a break from their daily class schedule to pursue a special intellectual interest for an entire week. Since the early 1970s Interim has been one of the most popular aspects of academic life at CRMS, as every member of the community is able to focus their energies on a single elective.

The goal of Interim is to immerse students and faculty in experiences and pursuits that enable students to “learn by doing.” It exposes students to new ideas, experiences, and environments. The opportunity to immerse oneself in this pursuit of knowledge in a specific discipline beyond normal academic schedule allows students and faculty to broaden their skills, appreciation, and awareness for the world in which we live.

Here’s a list of this year’s interim offerings:

 On-campus
Architectural Ironwork - Blacksmithing
Glassblowing
Silversmithing
Ceramics – Turning Teapots
Songwriting
Design & Entrepreneurship – Ski Building
Videography – a History of Spring Gulch
Computer Graphic Art
Reactions, Explosions & Disappearances – Chemistry in the Laboratory

 Off-campus
Photography in the Grand Canyon
Backcountry Skiing, Avalanche Level 1 Class
Outdoor Leadership - Wilderness First Aid Certification
Island Ecosystems – Bahamas
Service & Political Culture - Washington DC
Culture and Cooking in the Southwest – Santa Fe, NM
