About Watermelon University Masterclass: Each month on a Saturday, young scholars are invited to meet Professor Watermelon and Mister Smart at the Indianapolis Public Library. For three adventurous hours, the class dives into a themed topic, like an underwater world, an ancient Egyptian pyramid, or a space traveling spacecraft. These amusing settings are chosen to inspire a wealth of ideas and topics for young scholars to cultivate and use as springboards for creative writing and drawing. Young scholars research their topics by using the Dewey Decimal System and other valuable tools/resources found at the library. These academic skills are presented in a FUN and creative way, while children make stories, make art and make friends!


Melon Money: Like all Watermelon University clubs, camps and classes, Melon Money is earned through the participation of writing/drawing challenges and games. This Melon Money can be saved or spent at the Grand Auction at the end of each Masterclass.
