Wor-Wic offers summer courses for gifted and talented students

Registration has begun for Summer Scholars at Wor-Wic Community College. For the best selection of classes, parents of gifted and talented children entering third through ninth grade should register prior to June 1.

Sixteen new courses are being offered this summer, including “Super Science Sleuths,” “Travel the World with Textiles,” “Rev Up Your Robots,” “Make Your First Movie with Stop Motion Animation,” “Strings Tell a Story,” “Wor-Wic Star Search,” “Whatever Floats Your Boat,” “Critters, Currents and Life on the Bay” and “Life Skills for Leaders.”

Other topics include culinary arts, crime scene investigation, math games, art, writing, nursing career exploration, computer animation, digital video and photography, LEGO robotics and ooey gooey chemistry.

The one-week courses are being offered Monday through Friday, beginning July 11. Students can take full- or half-day courses. Full-day courses will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a one-hour lunch. Half-day courses, which are offered from 9 a.m. to noon or 1 to 4 p.m., can also be taken back-to-back to create a full-day schedule. Before and after care is available at the college’s on-campus child development center.

The courses are designed for public, private and home-schooled gifted and talented students entering grades three through nine in the fall of 2011. A student’s gifted and talented status is determined by the school they attend, based on the student’s outstanding abilities in the areas of general intellectual capabilities, specific academic aptitudes, or the creative, visual or performing arts.
