UD for KIDS Celebrates 19th Year

The Summer 2010 UD for KIDS program began on Monday, June 21. This year's program will bring young students to the campus during the weeks of June 21-25 for grades 1-2; June 28 - July 2 for grades 3-4 and July 12-16 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 19th 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. 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 thrilled to celebrate another UD for KIDS summer session! We are celebrating 19 years of serving gifted and talented students in the tri-state area," commented UD for KIDS coordinator, Cheryl Werner. "Our all-time favorite classes, such as Simply Slimy Really Gooey , Wacky and Wild Investigations , Cooking Kids , May It Please the Court , American Dolls , and Floating Down the Muddy Mississippi , join a few new classes including: Mini Musical , Drum Circle , Jeepers Creepers , Busy Bead Weaving Bowls , Nurse Force , UD Kids Iron Chef , and Garage Band Composers ." Our flagship course, Aviation , taught at the Dubuque Regional Airport, has also expanded with Instructor Wally Brown creating an Advanced Aviation course. We are so excited to offer these all of these enriching experiences for area students. Yahoo for UD Kids!"
