360 Students to Participate in Winter Super Saturdays
- The Center for Gifted Studies
- Friday, January 31st, 2020
Intro to Musical Theatre, Learning with Legos, and Mysteries of the Human Body are a few of the 27 classes bringing 360 students from across the region to WKU’s campus in Bowling Green for Winter Super Saturdays.
The 2020 slate of Winter Super Saturdays classes kicks off on Saturday, February 1. Coordinated by The Center for Gifted Studies, the event offers minds-on, hands on learning to high-interest, high-ability students in first through eighth grades.
With classes taking place on the first four Saturdays in February, Super Saturdays promotes students to continue learning while not in school. Children are encouraged to explore and pursue their passions outside the regular classroom while being in a fun and supportive environment with enthusiastic, like-minded peers.
Classes include Survival Science, which teaches scientific wilderness survival techniques like navigating by the stars and identifying edible food sources; Environmental Artists: Using the Minimum for Maximum Potential, and exploration of how artists can create with intentionality and take a stand against high waste and low resourcefulness; and Science Behind the Scenes, where participants can discover the scientific facts behind popular TV shows and movies.
