Summer Courses Offered for Middle School, High School Students
DuBois – The Art, Science, and Technology Institute (AST) at Penn State DuBois will begin its 2010 season in June, with new classes for students in grades 7 through 12. These enrichment classes, specially designed for middle and high school students, increase student's interest and knowledge in the arts, science, and technology, and provide challenging experiences which are not part of their regular school curriculum.
"Youth have the opportunity to extend their skills or attempt something new and different that could set the stage for even more exploration in the future," said Youth Program Coordinator Jeannine Hanes. "The course instructors are all experienced in working with these age groups and provide creative activities and time for the participants to delve deeply into the area that interests them."
This year's courses will introduce students to a wide range of subjects, including music recording, video editing, robotics, and video game programming.
The first session of AST classes begins June 14. For a complete list of courses, please visit www.dubois.psu.edu/youth, or call Jeannine Hanes at 814-375-4836.
