Walters State Community College will offer its popular Talented and Gifted (TAG) program this year. While the program will be virtual, students will still receive a choice of interesting topics, plenty of hands-on experience, and lessons from a college professor or other recognized expert.
“We have some creative professors and great new courses this year,” said Dr. Nicole Cardwell-Hampton, director of youth programs for the college’s Division of Workforce Training.
“We did this for Kids College last summer and students enjoyed the classes.”
TAG 2021 has two sessions: Feb. 27 and March 6 or March 13 and March 20. Class times for both sessions are 9-10:30 a.m. or 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Students may register for one to four classes, which each class costing $50. Materials will be mailed to students before the class date. Classes do require a computer with internet access.
Classes are targeted to rising fifth-eighth graders. Classes offered this year are American sign language storytelling and ASL chat, creative writing, website construction, Spanish, visual arts, wearable arts, debate, basic electronic math/wireless communications, terrariums (the underground world), and zombie apocalypse (community response). A new class this year is “Muggle Studies, A Harry Potter Experience.”
