Teen Summer Learning Program 2019

We have a teen summer lined up that is out of this world thanks to Randi Neff, Part-Time SCC Smoky Mountain STEM Collaborative Project Coordinator and Billy Love, Director of Education and Outreach at The Bascom Center for the Visual Arts. With their help we will be doing everything from creating galaxies with watercolor to harnessing the power of the sun to roast marshmallows! We will be launching our space themed summer June 6th, however teens can stop by to pick up schedules at the end of May. We'll also have a reading contest! Teens can read anything they like, total their hours up using the reading log attached to the summer schedule, and the grand prize will be awarded to the teen who has spent the most hours reading and has attended the most programs over the summer.
