EAU CLAIRE -- Two sessions of the 21st annual Summer Institute will be held June 15-25 and July 7-16 at Parkview Elementary School in Chippewa Falls and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The Institute will offer 63 classes for students in grades one through 12. Classes meet for 16 hours, Monday through Thursday, for two weeks. Courses include math, forensic science, physics, geology, chemistry, biology, geography, Spanish, French, orienteering, theater, ceramics, batik, book making, cartooning, writing, history, and computers and technology.
Children and parents select courses based on the interests, capabilities and motivational levels of the child. The program gives children the opportunity to explore new areas with an emphasis in interactive, hands-on activities. Classes will be located at Parkview Elementary School during session one and at UW-Eau Claire during the second session. Instructors for the classes are from the Eau Claire and surrounding communities, UW-Eau Claire faculty, and public and private schools.
Tuition for each class is $50 with a $10 material fee. To serve community needs, a supervised lunch period will be available at a nominal fee for students who wish to enroll in morning and afternoon classes.
