Thirty Students Complete the MSC 2008 Summer Program

The KU Math and Science Center recently completed another successful Summer Program.  The 2008 summer program consisted of six weeks of classes, field trips and activities designed to prepare students for postsecondary education.    This summer 30 Kansas high school students from Douglas, Shawnee, and Wyandotte counties completed the program.  The classes this summer were Statistics, Physics, English, Arabic, and African American Studies.  The students stayed in McCollum Hall on the KU campus.

Other activities included a career shadow day during which students shadowed a professional in an occupational field of interest, a trip to the state capital in Topeka where the students met Governor Sebelius, and campus visits to Wichita State University and William Jewell College.  On Friday, June 20th, the students did a community service project at the Lawrence Salvation Army.  The students worked hard doing painting, yard work, custodial work, and general maintenance.  The students also enjoyed many recreational activities and trips including roller skating, swimming, ice skating, a dance, and a performance at Starlight Theatre.  The summer program concluded with a banquet for families and a trip to Worlds of Fun.
