Even the youngest students can thrive at Lone Star College-Montgomery this summer during Discovery College, a fun and exciting enrichment program for youth beginning Monday, June 6. Registration kicks off this Saturday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., in the Commons Building (Building A).
Discovery College provides students ages 7-16 an opportunity to build their talents or develop new interests through a variety of one- or two-week class sessions that take place throughout the summer Monday through Thursday, from 1-5 p.m., at the LSC-Montgomery campus.
Knowledgeable instructors—usually college faculty, local school teachers, professional artists or performers—lead each class and encourage hands-on participation in a variety of subjects formatted for age-appropriate groups. The relaxed, creative atmosphere allows students to develop new skills, meet new friends, and enjoy learning in a safe environment.
Some of the fun and educational sessions include “Bubbly Oozy Science,” “Gardening & Nature,” “Dollars and Sense,” “Video & Digital Production,” “Yoga,” “Fun & Wacky Sports,” and “RoboCamp.” Each one-week session costs approximately $89, and the cost for the intensive two-week sessions range from $199 to $247.
Early registration is encouraged as classes can fill quickly.
If parents can’t make the registration kick-off event on April 16, they may register their child in person at the LSC-Montgomery campus, Mondays through Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, 9 a.m.-noon, in the Continuing Education office (Building E, Room 205). Registration is only available in person.
