Registration open for GSU Saturday School Spring 2014 session

December 17, 2013 Leave a comment

Registration is open for the first spring 2014 session of Georgia State University’s Saturday School for Scholars and Leaders. Classes are offered to students in kindergarten through 8th grade. Choices include a variety of topics in math, science, writing, art and more. They’ve even got a few LEGO classes on the list.

Classes will meet on four consecutive Saturdays, beginning February 1. Sessions are held in the mornings and afternoons, although the morning has two advantages: 1) more choices of classes; and 2) free parent seminars, which are held while the children are in class.

To qualify for admission to Saturday School, a student must meet scoring requirements on an achievement test or IQ test and have a recommendation from the testing psychologist or the school the student attends. New students can be granted provisional admission for one year without submitting the required documentation.

Registration deadline for the Spring A session is Jan. 20.

iD Tech computer camps return to Emory next summer

internalDriveFor kids and teens interested in programming, iD Tech computer camps will return to Emory University for summer 2014.

iD Tech camps are for kids ages 7 to 17. Topics include Scratch, Java, iOS, robotics, Minecraft and video game design, among others.

The camps offer a low student-to-instructor ratio and lots of hands-on learning. Some programs–including the two-week teen academies–allow students to live on the college campus; others are day camps only.
