Summer Youth Programs Set for June in DuBois, St. Marys

5/26/2011 —

The nationally recognized and award winning summer youth program, Kids in College (KIC) and the Art, Science and Technology Institute (AST) will return to Penn State DuBois this summer, with classes in DuBois and St. Marys. 


Since 1985, summer programs at Penn State DuBois have provided fun learning opportunities in reading, science, art, and more for thousands of youngsters from infants through high school aged kids.  The main objectives of the programs are to increase students' interest and knowledge in the arts, science, and technology, and to provide challenging experiences which are not part of the regular school curriculum.  

New classes this year include, Seeing in 3D - Perspective Taught Simply, Storybook Forest Fantasies, Recess, Fashion Jewelry Design with Wire, and Science and Story Stretching.

Returning programs, back by popular demand, will include Crazy Cooking Kids, Pirate School, Galactic Training Academy, Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate!, Frosting & Flowers, Awesome Art, Princess Palace II, Flower Power, Slime Time, and Bubble-ology.


KIC programs are for youth from age two, through grade six.  This year, there is also one class offered for infants and their parents. Mommy and Me Music Time uses music to improve motor skills, communication, coordination, and spatial reasoning in very young children.


Art, Science, and Technology Institute programs are for youth grades 7-12. AST programs contain enrichment classes specially designed for middle and high school students. Their grade level is determined by the grade the student will enter in the fall. 


St. Marys courses are set for June 13-16.  


Sessions in DuBois are scheduled for June 20-23; June 24; June 27-30; and July 1.
