Children attending College for Kids work on a group project.

Dr. Seuss Theater, Koding for Kids, Crazy Chemists and Apocalypse Survival 101 are just a few of the courses being offered this summer at Northern Essex Community College’s College for Kids summer program for 7 to 13 year-olds. Teens can pick from the STEM Academy’s selection of 3D Printing, Attacking a Network, Pun Math and more.

The courses will be offered in four weekly sessions: July 6 to 10; July 13 to 17; July 20 to 24; and July 27 to 31. There will be three, daily sessions that run two hours each from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m., and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

There are three age divisions: juniors – seven to 10-year olds; seniors – 10 to 13-year-olds and STEM Academy students – 13 to 16-year-olds. Each age level will be separated in order to offer age appropriate courses to students.

The classes each offer 10 hours of activity time over the course of the week. The summer 2020 schedule includes environmentally friendly art projects, computer coding, forensic science, 3D printing, robotics, special effects, theater, and sports. General information can be found here.
