Bright Lights Announces Summer 2018 Program Dates
Bright Lights will again be offering five weeks of quality learning programs to elementary and middle school students in Summer 2018. The program weeks for 2018 are June 4-8; June 11-15; June 18-22; June 25-29 and July 9-13. Registration will begin March 24 at BrightLights.org.
The respected non-profit, started by two Lincoln women over 30 years ago, typically offers over 100 classes to more than 1,500 students each summer.
During a class, students are immersed in their chosen topic for a week of hands-on learning. Parents know the class is teaching their children valuable STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts/literature and mathematics) principles, expanding their view of the world and helping them build new relationships with students sharing similar interests; the students just find it fun. As one parent put it, “My six-year-old thought she was spending a week enjoying Dr. Seuss, but it was so much more than that! She learned about science, math and other subjects in a fun environment. I don’t think she even realized she was learning.”
The main site for classes this year will again be Holmes Elementary but classes also take place at various community sites around Lincoln. Before Care, Lunch Care and free bus services are available at select sites.
More details on these services plus need-based scholarships can be found at BrightLights.org.
