MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/18/13) – Today wrapped up the Annual Summer Youth College Program at MCC. For over ten years MCC has taken the time to expand the minds of our children by offering this program.

Totaling 100 students this year, which is by far their largest group yet, the students were able to spend the last four days learning and discovering new things. Each student was grouped according to their grade level and attended three one hour classes each day.

Families were encouraged to participate in the orientation to meet and greet the instructor’s along with hearing the pertinent information about the activities the students would be learning over the course of the four days. All classroom supplies, snacks and a t-shirt were supplied.
 
This year’s class choices were; Artistic Artifacts by Donna Hendricks, Science is out of this world by Sharon Hendricks, Bon Voyage-The Titanic by Bethany Crouch, Painting Fun by Dianne Hildebrant, Wild about Cupcakes by Glenn Riggs and Funtastic Farm Science by Nichole Dunlap.
 
In the Artistic Artifacts class, the students explored the many and different artifacts made by native people and learn their legends behind artwork created by the first Americans. The Science is Out of this World class, the students were able to take a trip through the solar system and learned about the planets and the moon. The Bon Voyage – The Titanic class, the students were able to take a boarding pass to travel on the grandest ship of all time. They were able to embark the journey across the Atlantic Ocean on the Titanic’s maiden voyage. The Painting Fun class, the students were able to use acrylic paints to express their self and capture the world around them, they also learned new painting techniques. The Wild about Cupcakes class, the students were able to navigate their way through a safari of cupcake decorating. They also learned the basics of decorating cupcakes. The Funtastic Farm Science, the students were able to milk their love for science down on the farm by “egg…citing” experiments. They also enjoyed barn yard stories, games and songs.
 
“This is my third year doing this… this is our way of getting the kids on the campus and thinking about different career choices and thinking about college and kind of getting them out for fun this summer too,” stated Keaton Frazer, Coordinator of the Summer Youth College Program. “A flyer is sent home over the school year and the kids apply and once we have enough we split them by age group. We focus on everything… we have a cupcake decorating class, Titanic, social studies area… it’s all over.”
