Rose State offering Kids College Summer Camps
Camps provide classes in coding, drones, engineering and more for grades 1-9
MIDWEST CITY – Rose State College is preparing for another year of the popular Kids College and Teen Scene summer camps. Registration is now open for the camps, which will be held from June 5 through July 27. Typically drawing more than 1,500 students to campus every summer, the camps span seven weeks with over 150 classes to choose from.
Designed to foster creativity through interactive experiences that stimulate learning, classes include a wide variety of activities. Topics range from STEM classes to video game design to sports, arts and more. Small class sizes and 100% certified teachers enhance the learning experience for the students.
In drone classes, kids learn how to spin, weave and flip through obstacles. The weeklong camp helps build curiosity, critical thinking, courage and creativity. New Esports camps teach students how to smash with Kirby and Pikachu in ‘SuperSmash Brothers,’ play soccer in cars in ‘Rocket League’ and more. Other camp experiences teach 3D printing where the kids can even 3D print LEGOS. ‘Science of Flight,’ ‘Mural Art,’ ‘Special Effects Makeup,’ ‘Movie Making’ and ‘Photography’ are just a few samples of the camps available. For animal lovers, ‘Fun with Alpacas’ gives kids the opportunity to interact with these gentle creatures.
“As always, we are excited to offer another year of Kids College and Teen Scene,” Rose State President Dr. Jeanie Webb said. “Fostering an early interest in children for Oklahoma career fields, including aerospace, cyber and more, is of the utmost importance, and we are delighted to present this opportunity to the children in our community.”
