Parents of gifted and talented children entering the third through ninth grades in the fall of 2021 can register their children for Summer Scholars courses being offered on campus and online by Wor-Wic Community College this summer.
In-person courses focus on 3D printing, acoustic engineering, acting, animals, cooking, crime scene investigation, creative writing, computer repair, music, photography, rockets and robots, “Star Wars” and website building.
“This year, we are happy to be able to give parents a choice of either in-person, on-campus courses or virtual courses,” said Kerry Cleaver, director of continuing education and workforce development at Wor-Wic. “All classrooms are set up for social distancing and mask wearing will be enforced. We have a very exciting lineup of courses this year, which are sure to engage as well as entertain.”
Virtual one-week courses are offered Monday through Friday, beginning June 14 and ending Aug. 13. These half-day courses are held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
One-week courses are offered on campus Monday through Friday, beginning July 12 and ending Aug. 6. Students can take full- or half-day courses. Full-day courses are held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour lunch. Half-day courses, which are offered from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m., can also be taken back-to-back to create a full-day schedule.
The courses are designed for public, private and home-schooled gifted and talented students.
A student’s gifted and talented status is determined by the school they attend, based on the student’s abilities in the areas of general intellectual capabilities, specific academic aptitudes, or the creative, visual or performing arts.
