SCUBA Diving
Body: 

Most people view Lake Champlain as only a two-dimensional resource, a shimmering sheet of water on which to boat and fish and swim. But the big lake has a third dimension, and exploring its deep, dark, cold depths can be both fascinating and surprisingly enjoyable. The Waterfront Diving Center in Burlington offers professional SCUBA diving instruction that opens up another world on Lake Champlain, one populated by schools of fish and historic shipwrecks.

Imagine a school where the cool kids are the chess team. Welcome to I.S. 318. “Brooklyn Castle” tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country. The film follows the challenges these kids face in their personal lives — and on the chessboard — and is as much about the sting of their losses as it is about anticipation of their victories. By Katie Dellamaggiore.

This event is free and open to the public.
