NEW PHILADELPHIA - Kent State University at Tuscarawas officials are celebrating another successful installment of the College for Kids summertime learning program.

Last month, nearly 200 students participated in an assortment of week-long courses as part of the program held each year during the third week of June. A total of 15 different classes were offered during this 29th year of programming including new offerings like Metal Casting for Kids, Hogwarts Americana, Hip Hop, and Google Fun, along with some returning favorites including Makerspace Magic, Safe Sitter, Science in Motion, and Jr. Chefs. 

Program Coordinator Cindi Supers says the program is always a lot of fun for both the students and the instructors.

"We had local and not-so-local teachers who truly enjoyed this opportunity and had a great time teaching all of the creative minds at work," she says.  "Kids explored metal casting, science, cooking, dancing, being an artist and being a Hogwart. They also learned how to be a Buckeye Ninja Warrior, how to rescue people in the ER and about all the different things that can be done in the Kent State Tuscarawas Makerspace lab.”

Students who participated will receive college scholarships courtesy of the Kent State Tuscarawas University Foundation and other program sponsors. Each student will receive a $100 scholarship to Kent State Tuscarawas, with a limit of $500 over five years.
