Spooky series combines fun and learning
It’s Halloween season, and Moraine Park Technical College is offering an opportunity to explore the scientific phenomenon behind one of Halloween’s most popular headliners: Ghosts. Whether you’re a believer or non-believer in paranormal activity, Moraine Park’s four-week Paranormal Research class (CRN: 21583) offers a fun and educational look at the history of paranormal research, common misperceptions, identifying false positives, how to tell if something is faked, the pros and cons of different equipment used and theories that researchers have proposed.
With paranormal enthusiasts Matt and Amanda Schenk leading the class, there are sure to be some good stories on investigations to accompany the content covered in class. Matt has been conducting and participating in paranormal investigations since March 2005. He has taken classes in Parapsychology with renowned author and expert Loyd Auerbach and is working on a degree in Psychology.
Amanda has been a paranormal investigator since 2000. The paranormal experiences she had growing up sparked an interest in discovering answers to questions she has regarding an afterlife. She is a believer in the paranormal and is also able to look at things from a skeptical perspective.
The class will be held on Wednesdays from 6-9 p.m., Oct. 3, 10, 17 and 24. Cost to attend is $62.50 ($47.88 for those 62 and over). To register, call 800-472-4554. To discover more, visit morainepark.edu, or call Lauri Kounelis at 920-929-2117.
