In June 2012, grandparents and their grandchildren can study astronomy, stop-frame clay animation or a number of other subjects at UNT.
Grandparents University®, a multi-generational summer camp learning experience, is back for its fourth year in 2012. The camp, which runs June 21-22, offers grandparents and their grandchildren, ages 7 through 12, the opportunity to attend classes together and earn a Grandparents University degree by "majoring" in two subject areas. The camp wraps up with a graduation ceremony in UNT's Gateway Center.
Subject areas include:
- fingerprint identification
- digital photography
- creative art, veterinary medicine
- robotics, astronomy
- computer animation
- jewelry making
- stop-frame clay animation
- apparel merchandising and textiles in the fashion industry
Costs for Grandparents University range from $350 to $450. Grandparents and their grandchildren also have the option of spending the night in a UNT residence hall to experience college life.
Other optional activities include an evening swimming activity at no cost and a trip to Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch for an additional $15 per person.
