PSC's Kids@College Program Offering Six, Week-Long Classes This Summer

Kids@College Summer 2015

Let learning and fun continue year round by enrolling your child in Kids@College this summer. The Kids@College Program at Prairie State College is new and improved for 2015 with week-long classes, new times, and new topics.

Students ages five to 13 will enjoy six weeks of innovative and creative, hands-on learning activities with weekly themes. The curriculum is focused on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) curriculum areas.

Courses meet from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, June 22 through July 30, at the Matteson Area Center of the college, located at 4821 Southwick Dr. in Matteson.

Week one’s theme is “Masterpieces,” where children can discover the masterpiece in themselves through discovery, curiosity and creativity. Week two features “The Big Idea,” where students can learn how to set goals, write their vision, and execute their plans. During week three, “Little Scientist,” students will discover the field of microbiology, examine the ocean and all the habitats, and examine the ecosystems. Week four’s theme is “Let’s Build It,” where students will discover the process of building from the ground up and the various jobs needed to complete a project. Week five will focus on “Super Heroes,” and will foster self-awareness and building self-esteem in each child. During the final week, “Mystery Madness,” children will use their critical thinking and problem solving skills to crack codes.

Families have the option to choose individual weeks for $189 each per child, or all six weeks for $995 per child. Before and after care is available for $25 per child each week, or $150 per child for all six weeks.
