From learning to speak a foreign language to painting with watercolors, the 22nd annual Summer Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will offer children in the Chippewa Valley ages 6-16 a chance to enjoy a variety of classes.
The Summer Institute emphasizes fun, interactive and hands-on activities in each of the more than 60 classes. The first session will be held June 14-24 at Parkview Elementary School in Chippewa Falls and the second session will be held July 6-15 at Putnam Heights Elementary School in Eau Claire and the UW-Eau Claire campus.
Class subjects include mathematics, dance, acting, computers, electronics, ceramics, writing, traveling, cooking and multimedia studies. The classes are designed for children with high potential, talent or interest in a topic.
Class instructors are selected from Eau Claire, surrounding communities, UW-Eau Claire and public and private schools.
Tuition for the Summer Institute is $55 with a $10 material fee for most of the classes. A supervised lunch period will be offered to students involved in the morning and afternoon classes for a nominal fee. A limited number of partial tuition grants are available for students who have financial need. Classes fill quickly and class size is limited. The registration deadline is two weeks before classes begin.
For more information and registration materials, contact the Summer Institute at the UW-Eau Claire Arts and Sciences Continuing Education office at (715) 836-2031.
