Severe Thunderstorms: Storm Chasing and Field Techniques
A full understanding of severe convective storms is often considered one of the “final frontiers” in weather research/forecasting. One approach to better understand this phenomena has been recently popularized on television and in film, called “storm-chasing”. The purpose of this course is to provide students with a basic understanding of atmospheric convection, severe thunderstorms, and the challenges of forecasting and researching this phenomenon. In class, students will learn convective processes, wind shear, the climate of Prairie severe thunderstorm phenomena, methods of analyzing and diagnosing weather data to predict severe and non-severe convection, basic use of weather radar and weather satellite information, and visual storm structure identification. The fieldwork follows the class work with 7 consecutive days on the road with experienced storm- chasers where the class work will be applied to predicting severe thunderstorms. Students will also be able to observe thunderstorm phenomena. Prerequisite: Prearranged written consent of an individual instructor and permission of department head.

A jazz experience for all ages: Junior and Senior High School and University Students, Instrumental and Vocal Musicians, and Music Educators with an interest in Jazz.
The University of Manitoba Jazz Camp strives to foster the growth and development of jazz skills. Enrolment is open to anyone with an interest in furthering their jazz performance skills. Junior and senior high students, university students, jazz musicians and music educators are all encouraged to attend.
The camp will strive to achieve an instructor/student ratio of 1:10 to ensure a personalized experience for every participant.
Learning is based on the small ensemble setting. Students will work on the concept of rhythmic interaction, dynamic interplay, and call and response. Students will likewise develop improvisation techniques while building their jazz repertoire. Chord symbols, song form, chord progressions, and ear training will be covered.
Vocalists will be grouped together to focus on the skills and concepts essential for the solo jazz singer, and will perform as soloists with an experienced rhythm section. They will work on the skills and concepts that a jazz vocalist needs to master:
Concerts integral to the Jazz Camp are the Cool Wednesday Night Hang, the Winnipeg Art Gallery Jazz Concert, and Student Finale concerts.
More than ever! Up to twenty scholarships are available to band and choral programs in Manitoba. Each school is eligible to award a $50.00 scholarship to a deserving student based on the music instructor's recommendation. In addition, six $200.00 scholarships will be awarded at the Brandon Jazz Festival. Another five $200.00 scholarships, courtesy of University of Manitoba Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music and Summer Session, will be awarded.

Introduction to University is a great introduction to study and life at the University of Manitoba. It counts for 3 credits towards your degree and meets the Written English requirement that is compulsory for UM students. Smaller class sizes in Summer Session (maximum enrolment of 30 students) makes getting to know the professor and other students much easier – and gives you the individual attention that you need at the start of your university career. Summer University Advantage allows students to form a sense of community with other students during the more relaxed campus environment in summer. As well, students have the opportunity to engage in discussion with faculty members, receive individualized attention from support staff and advisors, and participate in academic skill-building workshops.
The experience will start with an orientation session. The orientation will introduce students to the U of M, including the library, classroom and research facilities, academic support services, and campus computing facilities. Also, students will participate in skill-building workshops designed to improve their skills in essay writing, note taking, examination preparation, critical thinking, and time management. Throughout the Summer Session, students will have the opportunity to meet select faculty members to acquaint them with various areas of study and research at the U of M.
ARTS 1110 A02 - Introduction to University is scheduled for July 3 - August 2, 2013, 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., Monday, Wednesday & Friday, except the first week when the class will meet Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Students who have been admitted to the University by June 30 are eligible to participate in Summer University Advantage.

2013 Summer Session Workshops at C.A.S.T.
Professor Mark West will lead two, 3-Day Design + Build Workshops at the University of Manitoba’s Centre for Architectural Structures and Technology Laboratory/Studio (CAST), in Winnipeg Canada.
Workshop #1 June 17,18,19 2013 CAST-IN-PLACE FABRIC-FORMED COLUMNS
Workshop #2 June 20, 21, 22 2013 FABRIC-FORMED THIN-SHELL MOLDS FOR PRE-CAST AND GLASS FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE (GFRC) PRODUCTS
Flexible molds for casting concrete structures and products is a rapidly developing field of investigation and production with many practical and aesthetic advantages over conventional rigid formworks. Mark West is a key figure in this field and the Center for Architectural Structures and Technology (CAST) has been at the forefront of flexible fabric formwork research for over a decade.
These two workshops offer a rare opportunity to learn how to design and construct using these new techniques. These workshops will emphasize both the ecological advantages of light fabric formworks and the design potentials they hold.
• Workshop #1 will explore the use of Alternative Cementitious Material (ACM) for low-carbon concrete structures in the production of fabric-formed columns.
• Workshop #2 will explore Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) applied to flexible fabric molds.
