The registration deadline for Morningside College’s Summer Institute has been extended to May 29.
The Summer Institute offers a selection of two-week courses on the Morningside campus for academically talented students who have completed the fifth, sixth, seventh or eighth grades. Courses are offered Mondays through Fridays, July 28 through August 8, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
According to Summer Institute Coordinator Pamla Hoadley, students must meet specific academic guidelines to participate in the program. Each student will take only one course during the session to allow for immersion in the subject and to promote interaction among the students in each course.
Course offerings include “Dynamics of Military Engagement,” “Examining the Evidence,” “FUNdamentals of Physics,” “Math Patterns and Fractals Around Us,” “Physics of Space Flight” and “The Writer’s Experience: A Workshop.”
Each course in the Summer Institute is taught by teachers from colleges and public and private schools. The cost for each course is $300. A limited number of scholarships are available.
