Children entering kindergarten in 2013 through the fifth grade are invited to attend Kid College — set for June 3- 13 — at the University of Tennessee at Martin main campus.
Children and their parents can select the classes they wish to take based on their age group and interests.
There are over 60 classes available, and children may take from one to five classes. Classes are $40 each.
For students in kindergarten to second grade, classes such as the following are offered:
• “Chemical Reactions,” where students will use ordinary materials in extraordinary ways and use cutlery to make a circuit.
• “Good ABC’s of Spanish Fiesta,” where they will explore the Spanish culture and language with games, words, pictures and songs with a native Hispanic instructor.
• “Jr. Space Camp,” where children will be introduced to the world of being an astronaut by learning how to sleep, eat and work in space.
Students in third through fifth grades have the option of classes such as:
• “CSI for Kids,” where children will use science in order to solve arsons, thefts and mysteries and will learn about fingerprinting, dental impressions and tool marks.
• “Fun In The Sun,” where children will be taught how to make ice cream, sand art and homemade play dough.
• “Art Adventures,” where children will try various art styles, such as pencil, pastels, watercolors and more.
Kid College is sponsored by the UT Martin Office of Extended Campus and Online Studies. Additional information will be emailed to parents prior to Kid College.
