UD for KIDS Celebrates 15 Years of Dreams and Discovery


The Summer 2006 UD for KIDS program begins on Monday, June 19. This year's program, Celebrating 15 Years of UD for KIDS, will bring young students to the campus during the weeks of June 19-23 for grades 1-2; June 26-30 for grades 3-4 and July 10-14 for grades 5-7. Classes will be held each day from 12:30- 4:00 p.m. at the University.

UD for KIDS offers summer academic enrichment through innovative hands-on learning experiences. The program, now celebrating its 15th summer, was developed to meet the needs of academically talented and gifted students in the tri-state area. Students select two classes from a variety of choices listed in the UD for KIDS Course Catalog. The small classes are taught by instructors who inspire student discovery and encourage teamwork - collaborative learning - in areas such as creative arts, math/computers, science, humanities/social studies, writing, and music.

"We are so excited to be celebrating our 15th anniversary of UD for Kids!," commented UD for KIDS coordinator, Cheryl Werner. "We look forward to welcoming both new and returning faces to campus! The program continues to grow in popularity every year!"

This year's course highlights include, Earth's Upheaval, Dish Soap Dilemma, Edible Language, Wacky and Wild Investigations, Cape Canaveral North, Aviation, May It Please the Court,
and many others!
