MARTIN, Tenn. — The annual University of Tennessee at Martin Kid College experience returns to the main campus June 12-16 for another round of summer fun. Classes are enrolling now for children entering kindergarten in fall 2017 through those entering the fifth grade.

Parents can register each child for up to five courses, and the registration fee is based on the number of courses selected. The base fee is $30 for the first course and $25 per course for each additional section. Some courses also have supply fees, which are payable to the course instructor on the first day of Kid College.

Classes for kindergarten through second grade include junior space camp, dance camp, drawing, softball, karate, messin’ with mixtures, simple machines, chemical reactions, bowling, choir and many others. Students in third through fifth grades can choose many of the same topics, with the addition of several age-appropriate courses.

Specific course descriptions, schedules, additional information for parents and registration materials are available online.

Wednesday will again be picture day, and all students are encouraged to wear their UT Martin Kid College T-shirt, which is included in the price of registration. June 16 will end with Kid College Open House from 4:30-6:30 p.m., during which family and friends are invited to view the work completed by students throughout the week.

For more information or for assistance registering, contact Debbie Mount, UT Martin Office of Educational Outreach, at 731-881-7104.
