Kids College a Success

Published on June 6, 2024

We recently held Kids College this summer for students who will be entering grades first through sixth this fall. Classes were June 3 - 6 at Ozarka's Melbourne campus.    

Ozarka Kids College's theme this year was "Let's travel through time," and included a fun-filled learning adventure, futuristic style. The students enjoyed daily STEM projects, learning about different time eras, art projects, and cooking classes. Students took home several projects such as, cornhusk dolls, dinosaur eggs and fossils, moon landing lunar models, marshmallow castle and catapult, college ID badge, and a t-shirt.

Kids College is designed to expand students' knowledge and enhance learning through classroom lessons and hands-on activities. The program allowed students to familiarize themselves with the Ozarka College campus in Melbourne, promoted Ozarka's accessibility, and reinforced the importance of a college education in today's world.

"As our numbers swell with enthusiasm we thank our community for their support towards this shared success, " said Jill Sandlin, Associate of Science in Education Director/Faculty. "The happiness and smiles I witnessed on each child's face is the true measurement of our success and an indication of the magic we'll weave together next year. "

This event could not have been possible without the following: Emi Elms, Whitney Morehead, Skyla Moyer, Lisa Pitts, and Kelsie Steed for teaching the students, Ozarka Technology Department, Dan Lindsey for creating ID badges, Katie Norris for capturing each moment, the Ozarka maintenance team, Rawk Imprinting for the t-shirts and Melbourne Subway for making lunch every day.
