Why are so many YA books, movies, and tv shows set in boarding schools? Why do they lend themselves to fantasy and SF? Why are we as readers obsessed with the boarding school mystique? Are the stone floors of dungeon classrooms really impervious to spilled potions?

Second medium size programming space. Will also have a widescreen tv or monitor available for presenting slides or running video. On Friday and Sunday the entire track of programming here is sponsored by VCON Emeritus Stan Hyde and the Monster Attack Team model building club - so expect topics on those days to range from how to build and paint garage kit models to an in-depth study of the Godzilla Multiverse. On Saturday you can expect a little bit of everything here.
