Photo gallery: Kids2College opens students’ eyes to a college education
College isn’t something many sixth-graders think about. But that may have changed for sixth-graders in Kansas City Public Schools.
Metropolitan Community College hosted the sixth annual Kids2College program March 5-6 on the Penn Valley campus. It’s designed to open the eyes of local sixth-graders and expand their dreams about the future.
There were morning and afternoon sessions, each featuring six stations with hands-on activities designed to spark students’ interests.
Close to 800 students took part in Kids2College over two days. It was originally scheduled to be three days, but Monday, March 4, was called off after winter weather forced cancellation of KCPS classes.
Here are some pictures from this year’s Kids2College event. (Photos by Chris Meggs and Tim Engle, MCC, and Julius Foster, Kansas City Public Schools)
