The William Carey University Center for Creative Scholars will host the Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead! Creativity Exploration Camp for students in grades two through eight at the Hattiesburg campus from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on July 21-23.
 
During the camp, students will explore their creative potential through activities in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. The camp will engage participants through critical thinking and problem-solving with a creative arts emphasis.
 
"Research shows that gifted learners thrive in summer programs," said Dr. Christina Liverett, center director and an assistant professor of education at Carey. "This camp will give students an opportunity to grow and network with other gifted learners as they learn about these fields."
 
In order to attend, students must be nominated by parents, teachers, peers or self-nomination. The cost for the camp is $75, which includes tuition, lunch and instructional materials. The registration deadline is July 16.

Individuals interested in pursuing a Mississippi teacher's license through the alternate route can take the two necessary courses during the five-week second summer term in July and August at William Carey University.

The courses, including classroom management and tests, measurements and evaluations, will meet beginning the week of July 6 and will end the week of August 7. In order to become licensed, teacher candidates must successfully complete both courses and have passing scores on both the Praxis Core and Praxis II examinations.

After completion of all requirements, candidates are eligible to receive a three-year interim teacher's license and can be employed by a school district. During this time, candidates are also enrolled in an internship course in which they are monitored in their classrooms and attend planned Saturday learning sessions. After completion of the one-year internship course, candidates are eligible to receive a five-year license.

For more information on the alternate route, contact the School of Education at (601) 318-6600 or email Dr. Ben Burnett, dean, at bburnett@wmcarey.edu. Students may apply online and view course schedules at www.wmcarey.edu.
