CTC’s College for Kids classes continue

Special to the HHES

Registration for the Central Texas College (CTC) Continuing Education department’s College for Kids classes in July is underway now. Classes are directed to youngsters three years to high school-age and combine fun and hands-on learning in the studies of science, computers, arts and crafts, life skills, languages and more. Some of the classes offered in July include:

Simply Fun Machines (age 6-13): This new class teaches students the mechanics of six simple machines as they learn how to develop a lever, pulley, wheel and axle, inclined plane, wedge and screw and combine them to create a Rube Goldberg machine. The class is Monday through Thursday, July 17-20, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. The cost is $75.

App Inventor (age 10-14): Students will learn how to create their very own app using App Inventor – a free cloud-based application instead of using Java. During the class, they will learn software engineering concepts like logics, variables, loops and data types. The class is Monday through Thursday, July 24-27, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. The cost is $75.
