"G'day Mate!" UACCM Kid's College Wraps Up

40 area children learned how to say “G’day mate” and “Yee-haw!” while exploring the culture, sights and sounds of the far away land of Australia and the rough-and-rowdy Wild West during Kid’s College at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton July 12-16.
During the week, participants learned all about Australia and the Great Barrier Reef as well as the American Wild West in a fun, interactive environment. Kids performed hands-on activities, games, scientific investigations, and art projects designed to enhance their math and science skills. During their final day on campus, the children invited their parents to come and enjoy a program highlighting what they had learned during the week. According to UACCM Division Chair of Community Education Kim Darling, “The kids all seemed to have had a great time, and we hope to continue to expand the program in the future to further enhance the positive impact we can make on these young minds.”

    My daughter attended this year's Kids College. Special thanks to all of the staff and faculty who made this one of her most enjoyable weeks during her summer vacation not to mention she learned quite a bit. It was clear that a lot of planning on work went into this event. ~ Leslie L. Edwards, UACCM Staff & Mother of 4
