MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin is now registering children for the 2018 Kid College programs on the main campus in Martin and at the UT Martin educational outreach centers in Parsons, Ripley, Selmer and Somerville.

Kid College will be held on the main campus from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., June 11-15, for children entering kindergarten through fifth grade. Parents can register each child for up to five classes, and individual time schedules will vary based on the courses selected.

The registration fee is $30 per class and is due at the time of registration. Pre-registration is required, and the fee includes a T-shirt. Some courses have individual supply fees which must be paid directly to the course instructor on the first day of class. Children who will attend Kid College all day must bring lunch from home.

Class choices for children entering kindergarten through second grade include cheerleading, chemical reactions, karate, bowling, music, disc golf, backyard farming and junior space camp. Selections for students in third through fifth grades include physics, advanced karate, paint lab, adventures in engineering, creative computers, basketball and disc golf. A complete list of courses is available on the Kid College website.

Parents will be sent an email June 6 containing each child’s class schedule, supply fees and other important information. Please contact the UT Martin Office of Educational Outreach at 731-881-7104 if you do not receive this email.
