Rose State College will host Kids College and Teen Scene classes online this summer. The new format allows for students to safely learn and have fun with wacky instructors teaching STEM, cooking, art, sports and other educational topics. Classes will start as scheduled on June 8 and run through August 3rd. But instead of face-to-face learning, students will go on Facebook to retrieve the daily lessons, and meet up with Kids College host Kathy Gentry. Ms. Gentry, an instructor with the Mid-Del School district, will lead participants through daily fun facts, at-home projects, and lessons. Students can access the FREE learning via the Kids College Facebook page at Rose State Kids College & Teen Scene. Parents can also go to the Kids College website at to see a schedule of offerings for each week. The move to the new modality was in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Rose State’s Kids College and Teen Scene was designed to address educational topics like Math, English, Reading and STEM initiatives for students in 1st-10th grades. In addition, the programming helps halt the ‘brain-drain’ that occurs during the summer months for many students. Since 2002, Kids College and Teen Scene have served more than 27,000 students with summer classes offered twice a day.
