COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University will again offer its popular Summer Spectacular summer enrichment program for children ages 4-11, this year at Downtown Elementary School, 1400 1st Ave.

The spectacular runs from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays from June 9-July 3.

Started in 2005, the program offers families an alternative, fun learning opportunity while CSU teacher education students gain valuable field experience and more freedom in their approach to curriculum and teaching styles.

This year’s Summer Spectacular theme is Space: Full STEAM Ahead, with STEAM representing science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.

Registration is now open on a first-come, first-served basis. A waiting list will be developed, allowing more children to be added if others drop out. The cost is $40 per week per child, or $140 for all four weeks, with the fee paid in advance. The fees include all supplies, snacks and a T-shirt.
