Kids in College (KIC) and the Art, Science, and Technology (AST) Institute summer youth programs at Penn State DuBois have a slightly different appearance this year.  Courses for ages four through kindergarten will be offered on a Monday through Thursday morning or afternoon schedule, but all other courses will be day-long and will explore a new theme daily. The courses will mainly focus on the fields of science, technology, engineering, math and art and directly relate to the academic programs of study offered at Penn State DuBois.

 

"Preparing youth for careers in science, technology, engineering, and math includes provoking, informing, and stimulating creative thinking. Through hands-on experiments, activities, and projects, students will gain meaningful and relevant learning experiences this summer at Penn State DuBois," said Jeannine Hanes, Youth Program Coordinator.

 

Youth in Grades one to six can attend one-day courses during the week of June 18-22, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or attend all week with a discounted rate. The daily themes are:  Mad Science Monday, Technology Tuesday, Wild Wednesday, Totally Talented Thursday, and Fantasy Fun Friday.

 

An SAT Preparation course will also be held for students in grades 10 to 12 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 12-28, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

 

Penn State DuBois Lions Basketball Camps are scheduled from Monday through Thursday, June 11-14, for boys and girls grades one to four and for boys grades five to eight.  

 

Unfortunately, the girls' camp for grades five through nine will not be held this year due to scheduling conflicts.

 

The DuBois Lions Wrestling Camp is scheduled Monday through Thursday, July 9-12, for boys in grades 1-12.

 

Limited scholarships are available based on financial need.  For a complete list of courses, descriptions, schedules, and registration information, as well as additional information regarding youth programs at Penn State DuBois, please visit www.ds.psu.edu/youth  or call Jeannine at 814-375-4836
