This summer, make your own shrunken potato chip head

Spring has finally arrived (no, really!) which means Pocono parents have to start thinking about summer. As in: “What the heck will we do with the kids once school’s out?”

We’re lucky to have two higher-education institutions nearby that offer summer courses for the younger crowd.

Northampton Community College’s Horizons For Youth program in Tannersville is for kindergarteners through high schoolers. Programs start June 24 and run Aug. 30, 2013. Get signup information here.

Among the more unique offerings:

  • Duct Tape Crafts
  • Build Your Own Virtual World
  • Zumbatomic
  • How to Get Your First Job
  • and (my personal favorite) Potato Chip Science — “with over 30 experiments to choose from, you can make things like a shrunken potato chip head.” (The question is: Can you eat just one?)

At East Stroudsburg University, there is esu4kids, for children ages 6-16. Programs run weekdays July 8-26. Classes are an hour long, held throughout the day. Sign up for as many as seven per day. Get the details here.

Many, many course offerings are there, among them:

  • Create Your Own Comic Book
  • Kids Karma: Actions for a Peaceful Planet
  • Star Wars Role Play (interested, you are)

Yoda is ready for summer. Are you?
