Science, music, arts classes offered for area youngsters

By Bruce Lieberman

— Children looking for something to do this summer can choose from more than two dozen enrichment classes offered by the Carlsbad Educational Foundation.

The foundation is offering courses from June 28 through July 23. The 27 half-day enrichment classes, which run for one week each, are tailored for elementary and middle-school students. They include a variety of programs in science, music and the arts.

Among the classes to be offered are an American Idol-style singing competition, a robotics class, a junior detectives class, a writing course, a science and technology inventions class and a kindergarten preparatory class.

The classes are open to families living in Carlsbad and neighboring communities, and they will take place at Jefferson Elementary School at 3743 Jefferson St. The classes can be combined with the foundation’s full-day Kids’ Care child care program.

Tuition for all but one class is $120, not including supplies. The cost of the inventions class is $250.

Enrollment is now open and runs through the spring. Brochures with more details, complete class descriptions and a registration form are available at each Carlsbad public school or can be downloaded at CarlsbadEd.org.
