Parents of gifted and talented children entering the third through ninth grades in the fall of 2019 can register their children for Summer Scholars courses being offered at Wor-Wic Community College this summer.
New courses being offered include “Become a Junior Journalist,” “Jaws and Claws: the Science of Jurassic Park,” “Power of Music,” “Superheroes, Sidekicks and Villians” and “What’s in YOUR Food?” Other courses focus on 3-D printing, acoustic engineering, acting, animals, computer repair, cooking, crime scene investigation, movie making, muggles, photography, rockets and robots, stained glass, “Star Wars” and website building.
“Each year, we offer new courses and bring back some of the old favorites,” said Kerry Cleaver, director of continuing education and workforce development at Wor-Wic. “We have a very exciting line up of courses for participants this year, which are sure to spark their imaginations while they are having fun.”
The one-week courses are offered on campus Monday through Friday, beginning July 8 and ending Aug. 2. 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. Before and after care is available at the college’s on-campus child development center.
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.
Space is limited. For the best selection of classes, registrations should be submitted prior to
March 31. For more information, visit www.worwic.edu/SummerScholars or call 410-334-2815.
