Another set of summer classes will soon be in session at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College, but the students who enroll in them will be anything but typical. In fact, they will redefine the term 'non-traditional student,' primarily because their average age should be somewhere around ten.
Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College will host Kids' College from July 12 through July 15 for children ages eight to 12. Kids' College is intended to better bridge the gap between children and college. By introducing young students to the concept of going to college, it is more likely that their future transition into higher learning will be something they are more comfortable with.
Kids' College will offer five classes to its students, including:
*Your Future is Calling- a course that will address career options and career preparation
*Farm Kids- an introduction into how a farm works
*Computers and Graphics
*Fitness and First Aid
*Crime Scene Investigation
Each class will focus on fun, hands-on activities.
Students can be dropped off each morning at NEO's Ables Hall between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. and must be picked up by 12:45 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
The cost is $125 per student, which includes supplies. Scholarships are available.
