The end of the first session of College For Kids is just around the corner! Tomorrow is the final day for the June term of College For Kids, and we’ll be celebrating our wonderful students and instructors with the Showcase of Learning. The Showcase of Learning is an opportunity for parents to join their students for the final day of College For Kids and see their hard work come to life with projects, presentations, and performances in the classes. Parents can also join students for lunch at the end of the day!
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look into our group picture day. Shout out to Mr. Scearce, the Astronomy and Remote-Piloted Aircraft instructor, and Mr. Campagna, the Photography instructor, for donating their talents to make picture day a unique and commemorative experience. Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for the Showcase of Learning!
The students in Brian Reynolds’s Math Power class at Grant Wood AEA’s College For Kids used their hands-on problem solving skills to apply math to real-life situations! In today’s class, Reynolds had the students calculate the number of license plates possible in Iowa, the number of ways to organize seven books, and possible combinations of people for sports teams using techniques of probability, factorials, and permutation. Math Power and classes like it at Grant Wood AEA’s College For Kids can help kids maintain and improve their academic skills over the summer, one fun math problem at a time!
The Sing! Act! Dance! class at Grant Wood AEA’s College For Kids is overflowing with talent and dedication from both students and their instructor, Miss Lyn A’Hearn. Miss A’Hearn coached the students on the importance of confidence and stage presence during an audition with demonstrations of posture and singing techniques. These hard-working students overcame stage fright by auditioning for roles in their upcoming performance of scenes from Mulan in front of their peers! The students sang songs from Mulan a cappella and with a piano, and practiced dialogue as Mulan and Li Shang. Join us next week on July 1st for the Showcase of Learning to see their performance!
