Summer programs for youth are heating up at WWU
The Odyssey of Science & Arts program is a hands-on educational enrichment program for students entering grades four through nine. The programs offer a wide variety of topics in a weeklong half-day or full-day format. This summer, students will have the chance to explore chemistry, creative design and engineering, television production, tidepooling and more. The courses build upon skills learned during the school year, while providing a fun environment and camaraderie that comes from attending classes with like-minded youth.
College Quest offers high school students a hands-on experience of university life, from dorm to classroom to dining hall. During the program, students complete a college course and earn a WWU credit, strengthen their college application portfolio and form extraordinary social connections that come with life in a residence hall. Essentially, College Quest helps to bridge the gap between high school and college and puts students on a path to personal, educational and career success.
This summer's College Quest courses will include:
- Dance, Conditioning and Choreography
- Film/Video Production
- Criminal Law & Justice
- Environmental Science & Sustainability
- Behavioral Neuroscience
About 40 percent of College Quest students eventually become students at WWU.
