Kids University


Program Description

KU is building on previous years and designing a new focus moving forward.  Augusta University’s College of Education Kids University has a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) emphasis for all students K-8. The curriculum was written and designed by our professors  to challenge students and adopts a problem-solving based  approach to ensure students are engaged in fun, active learning.

Students will be work on actual situations our community faces presented by local professionals, companies, university staff, and peers and will learn how to create and design viable solutions.

Morning activities will focus on the academic side of STEAM while afternoon activities will emphasize activity based fine arts. Each week of the camp is designed to stand alone, however student projects build towards a culminating project for the final week of camp.
