Youth Education at the U expands its reach into Bountiful with several new classes, including Mad About Math, Music Maniacs, Chemistry & Our World, Chess Challenges and Space Aces. Also new for 2009, Youth Education will offer week-long spring break camps for kids ages 5-12. With everything from Pee Wee Picassos to ACT preparatory courses, Youth Education’s experiential learning classes help Davis County children discover a new interest, make friends and explore the world around them.
For over 25 years, Academic Programs has been offering a rich array of credit and noncredit classes at the Bountiful site. Spring course offerings in art, economics, fitness, writing, and many other subject areas range from a few weeks in length to an entire semester. With the option to earn college credit or learn something new without the stress of assignments or grades, these Academic Programs cater equally to U of U students and lifelong learners.
