Who may attend?

Super kids may attend!  Super kids include all students entering first, second, and third grade who desire to learn and have fun.  The Super Kids Program is designed to offer students an exciting curriculum not offered in most schools.  The term “Super Kids” represents the belief that all students are super and thus should have an opportunity to attend.

Daily Schedule

Each course in the UCA Super Kids Program will be offered for 1 hour and 50 minutes per day for one week. Students take three courses. The same courses are offered for four sessions. All classes will be held at the University of Central Arkansas Child Study Center (115 Farris Road). The program begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. For more information call 501-852-2822.

Classes Offered

Young Medical Scientist

It’s never too early to discover the next Dr. Lee Salk. Scrub-up and get prepared for an exciting experience in a medical laboratory. Come and find out what it’s like to be the doctor rather than the patient. Action packed, hands-on exploration in a wide-variety of medical fields is a promise. Students will definitely feel like Young Medical Scientists.

Young Chemist

Grab your coat and goggles and let’s head to the lab to explore the wonderful world of chemistry. We will make big words like viscosity, absorption, carbonization, evaporation, and much more becoming meaningful to Young Chemists. Through hands-on experiments, children will learn about salt evaporation, the properties of water, and chemical formulas for common every-day items. All laboratory experiences will pique the interests of any budding Dmitri Mendeleev or Marie Curie.

Young Paleontologist

Young Paleontologists will study about dinosaurs and much, much more! It will be a “dino-mite” time learning about dinosaur discoveries, the study of fossil formations, the meaning of petrification, and how organisms interact with each other within particular environments. Here is an opportunity for your Young Paleontologist to make new discoveries. So hold on tight as we travel back in time to the age of the dinosaurs and beyond.

Friendship Builders

An important goal of UCA Super Kids 2015 will be the focus on student’s relationships. Healthy friendships are important building blocks for future success. Therefore, a special 20 minutes per day will be devoted to these relationships. Speakers will be invited to give “motivational” talks to the Super Kids.


Program Fees

Students attending the UCA Super Kids Program for the five days will pay an enrollment fee of $155. This will include enrollment in the three extraordinary courses. Students are expected to bring their lunches. Applications will be processed on a first-come basis. Registration will be closed when space is filled. All registration paperwork will be e-mailed.


Each of the UCA Super Kids 2015 faculty members has experience working with students in this age group and a high degree of knowledge in his or her given subject areas. It is the goal of each faculty member to make this an enjoyable learning experience. UCA Super Kids 2015 is directed by Dr. Mark Cooper, Dr. Rene’ Crow, and Jamie Dallas.
