Camp pushes full STEAM ahead with class offerings
Rose State College is again, expecting a record year from its Kids College program. Up almost 25% from May 2018, the Kids College program looks to push full STEAM ahead with new programming, allowing students elementary-age through high school an opportunity to pursue new and engaging classes in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Campers will have the opportunity to learn the Chemistry of Candy, learn Coding and Video Game Design, or take an Archery or Indoor Soccer class. Each of these half-day, week-long courses allow students to remain engaged in an environment of learning over the summer break.
“Kids College isn’t your typical summer camp,” said Rick Woodard, Director of the Community Learning Center at Rose State College. “Kids College puts our students in a place where they can continue to learn and grow over the summer.” According to Woodard, many of these students and parents use the Kids College curriculum to try new things. “Many of our students are taking classes; they may not have the opportunity to take during the school year. Kids College allows parents to expose their kids to something new without having to invest an arm and a leg,” said Woodard.
Kid’s College runs from June 3 through August 2. Each week, different morning and afternoon sessions are offered, with classes running Monday through Thursday.
