More than 600 Students Attend Fall Super Saturdays 2012

More than 600 Students Attend Fall Super Saturdays 2012

Even as the holidays grew closer and closer, a program at Western Kentucky University for high-ability and high-interest students kept children excited about fun in the classroom rather than food and festivities to come.

The Center for Gifted Studies’ Fall Super Saturdays program hosted more than 600 first through eighth graders from three states and more than 60 school districts each Saturday from October 27 to November 17, 2012.

During the program, which took place on WKU’s Main and South campuses and at the Kentucky Science Center (formerly the Louisville Science Center), students participated in one of nearly 40 classes. Imaginations took flight in classes like Secret Identity: Unleashing Your Inner Superhero and Zombie Survival Guide. International exploration began in Let’s Learn German! Lernen wir Deutsch! and Australian Adventure, and mysteries unraveled in Junior Detective Agency and The Science Behind Lord of the Rings.

Though these enrichment courses varied greatly in topic, all encouraged children to explore their interests in a challenging, yet nurturing environment.

The hands-on, mind-on learning Super Saturdays is known for will continue this year with Winter Super Saturday 2013 on January 26 and February 2, 9, and 16 from 12 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Applications are now available on The Center for Gifted Studies website. Call The Center at 270.745.6323 for more information.
