This program is intended for up to 150 children ages 9-12 (as of September 30, 2012) who live within a one-hour driving distance of Bowling Green State University. There are no exceptions to this rule. If a child is enrolled without satisfying this requirement we will cancel their registration and notify the parent.
When you register your child for Kids’ Tech University (Bowling Green State University - Spring Semester Event) you are enrolling him or her to attend ALL FOUR of the program dates. We are expecting that the children will attend both the interactive session AND the hands-on activity of the day. If you want your child to participate in only the hands-on OR interactive session of the day, please do not register to attend the program.
We are striving to create a “university feel” that includes children attending an interactive session (lecture) with their peers in a university lecture hall. Volunteers will be with the children (in a ratio of 1 to 10) within the lecture space. These volunteers are from Bowling Green State University and will watch over your child until you come to pick him or her up. Parents are welcome to watch the interactive session from a different lecture hall on campus, which is within a short walking distance from the children’s lecture hall. Due to seat limitations we do not have space within the children’s lecture hall to accommodate parents. After the interactive session, parents are required to pick up their child and escort him or her to lunch and to the hands-on activities.

In order to keep up with the costs of providing a quality program, there will be a registration fee of $25.00 per child, payable upon registration. The registration fee must be paid by check; further directions will be given at the time of enrollment. Parents have an option to apply for a scholarship for your child at the time you register online. If you have any questions regarding the scholarship please contact Kathleen Booher at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch cards and a KTU t-shirt will be given to all children who attend KTU.
You must register your child under the correct locality; failure to do so will result in your registration being deleted.
