POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) – Black River Technical College hosted its annual "Kids College." 

100 first through sixth grade students spent a week of their summer in college. They attended six classes a day, starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 12:30 p.m. Subjects ranged from electrical safety to archeology.

The children also participated in hands-on activities. Patti Blaxton, BRTC's Director for Corporate and Community Education said, "The Army National Guard will come each year. Yesterday they brought pedal carts and they played outside on the pedal carts.  The Humane Society is here with animals today.  So, we just have a big variety of things going on so if they don't like one thing that day, they'll probably like the rest."

Linda Edington, instructor for the Department of Creative Learning said, "It will enhance all children for their learning and their experiences because this way they get hands on experience."

"Kids College" started Monday and will end on Friday.
