BC Kids Kollege provides educational fun for all

Mon Apr 22, 2013
It’s never too soon to think about college, even for kids who have just started school. For students entering first through sixth grade, the college they should consider this summer is Kids Kollege, offered through Community Education at Brazosport College.

Fun, week-long programs are scheduled from July 15-26 on the Brazosport College campus. 

Bulls-Eye, Sports Spectacular and Tae Kwon Do are great choices for the kids who want to burn off some summer energy without fighting the heat and mosquitoes outside. Tool Time, Up, Up & Away and Weird Science will appeal to the mechanically inclined and scientist-in-the-making. Pinterest Projects, Watercolor Wonders and Jam Session might be just the ticket for the kids with a creative flair, while All About Animals is a fantastic choice for children who love wildlife. And don’t forget the Kids in the Kitchen class for those looking to create tasty treats.

Each class meets Monday through Friday for 50 minutes. Participants may register for up to four choices. Classes are available for students entering first through third grade during the week of July 15-19 in time slots from 8 a.m. until noon. Students entering fourth through sixth grade attend classes July 22-26 from 8 a.m. until noon.

The cost is $25 per class per participant. All students meet each day in the gymnasium to be escorted by their instructors to their class locations on campus.  

Registration is currently open and availability is limited. Those registering before June 6 receive a five percent discount. Students may register through the “online registration” link from the BC Community Education Web site at www.brazosport.edu/ce or in person at the Community Education Center, located on the main campus in Room B100. More information is available by calling 979.230-3600.
