Kids College 10

Cool Chemistry class

More than 550 children recently participated in Brazosport College’s popular Kids College summer program, the largest enrollment in the program’s history.

In all, 551 kids participated in the two-week program, including 283 6-to-8-year-olds in the first week, followed by 268 9-to-12-year-olds in the second week. Classes ran Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon both weeks.

The program consisted of up-to-four 50-minute classes a day, with students choosing between 18 different courses, which ranged from archery to cooking to riding horses to learning sign language and everything in between. Three new classes — “Edible Crafts,” “Cool Chemistry” and “Shocking Science” — were introduced this year.

The event, which was organized through BC’s Community Education department, ran smoothly thanks to the efforts from 18 volunteers, five CE staff members and two student assistants.

Below are a few pictures from this past week’s 9-to-12-year-old Kids College activities:
