Program teaches students hands-on science, math, technology and leadership skills
The Blinn College – Schulenburg campus is offering students entering grades 4-8 hands-on learning opportunities in math, science, technology and leadership at its fifth annual Kids College offered July 15-19.
Last year, students learned about the various parts of the brain and the senses and emotions they control, made kaleidoscopes and participated in leadership activities with SWIFT AmeriCorps volunteers. Students also learned about estimating distance, weight and volume using the metric system and built complex machines from household items.
This year’s theme will be “Oceans of Fun,” and daily sessions will be held from 9 a.m. until noon. The program costs $49 per student and pre-registration is required. Registration will be limited to 80 students, and forms are available at the Schulenburg campus located at 100 Ranger Drive and online at www.blinn.edu/schulenburg.
