Summer Scholars adds new options

Parents of gifted and talented children entering the third through 10th grades in the fall of 2024 can register their children for Summer Scholars at Wor-Wic Community College, beginning Friday, March 1.
New age groupings will offer courses for third- and fourth-graders, fifth- to seventh-graders and eighth- to 10th-graders. This year, participants of some courses will have access to the tools and high-tech training devices in the new Patricia and Alan Guerrieri Technology Center, with new courses being added on STEM topics such as wind energy.
Talented teens will also find culinary arts and business courses. Returning favorites include “Korean Culture and K-Pop,” where students learn Korean language, dance and traditions, and “Rockets and Robots,” in which participants put technology to work in exciting ways. Other courses focus on 3D printing, acting, animals, cooking, crime scene investigation, photography and “Star Wars.”
One-week courses are offered Monday through Friday, beginning July 8 and ending Aug. 2. Students can take full- or half-day courses. Full-day courses are 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 be taken back-to-back to create a full day. Before and after care will be offered.
The courses are designed for public, private and home-schooled gifted and talented students. A student’s gifted and talented status is determined by the school they attend, based on the student’s abilities in the areas of general intellectual capabilities, specific academic aptitudes, or the creative, visual or performing arts.
