BELLINGHAM – Western Washington University’s “Odyssey of Science and Arts” youth program presents an extraordinary academic experience on the university campus for students entering grades 4-9 in two sessions: June 27-July 1 and July 18-22.
Odyssey of Science and Arts offers a wide variety of specialty topics in a weeklong half-day format. Students may attend a morning session, an afternoon session, or both sessions for a full-day experience. The session topics for Elementary School students (entering grades 4-6) and Middle School students (entering grades 7-9) are a diverse mix of options to best suit the interests and abilities of the students.
The classes are taught by enthusiastic and dedicated WWU faculty and local school teachers using a hands-on, inquiry-based format. Students can explore biology, computers, creative writing, ecology, fine arts, language, music, veterinary science or several other exciting options in WWU’s state-of-the-art labs and classrooms. The program provides an opportunity for students to discover new knowledge, while enjoying the fun learning environment and camaraderie that comes from engaging with like-minded students.
