Carey hosts creativity exploration camp for second through eighth graders


This is a news release from William Carey University

The William Carey University Center for Creative Scholars will host the Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead! Creativity Exploration Camp for students in grades two through eight at the Hattiesburg campus from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on July 21-23.

During the camp, students will explore their creative potential through activities in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. The camp will engage participants through critical thinking and problem-solving with a creative arts emphasis.

"Research shows that gifted learners thrive in summer programs," said Dr. Christina Liverett, center director and an assistant professor of education at Carey. "This camp will give students an opportunity to grow and network with other gifted learners as they learn about these fields."

In order to attend, students must be nominated by parents, teachers, peers or self-nomination. The cost for the camp is $75, which includes tuition, lunch and instructional materials. The registration deadline is July 16.
