C4K offers learning opportunities on Greeley, Fort Lupton, Windsor and Loveland campuses. Registration opens at 8 a.m. on March 28 at aims.co/C4K.
 
The four-day program allows students to "go to college" and is a low-cost, unique, enriching program for learners 9-15 years. Participants choose two classes to take during their College for Kids experience. In addition, C4K offers participants morning and afternoon classes, two snacks and lunch.
 
C4K instructors developed the classes to be fun, captivating and hands-on. Students work with technology such as 3D printing, robotics, digital cameras, computer coding and more. There are also opportunities for growth in art, music and theater. Participants can also explore potential career fields such as business, medicine, agriculture, science, law, and more. 

Youth ages 13-15 can participate in the junior leaders program, assisting instructors in the classroom while taking their own courses. Junior leaders must participate in training the Friday before their program begins.
 
"It's a really fun, out-of-the-box program that's highly interactive and gives kiddos a chance to experience what it's like to be a 'college student' by taking classes on a college campus," explains Katherine Jacobs, lifelong learning program coordinator at Aims. "Students will get to come and learn lifelong skills while making new friends."
 
The cost of tuition is $75 for the full four days on the Greeley, Windsor and Loveland campuses. Thanks to generous supporters, the program at Fort Lupton is subsidized and costs participants $25.
