"I had a mom say to me on the way in, 'If we had this kind of motivation for their kid during the school year, this would be great. Because they're ready to get out of bed, they want to come, they're having a great time, and they talk about it when they get home."
Conni Crittenden - Program Director
A program put on by Ingham County ISD is helping prevent that brain drain students tend to have when out of class for the summer.
Kids College at Michigan State University is a science program for fourth and fifth graders in Ingham, Eaton, Calhoun, and Shiawassee counties.
During the last couple of weeks, students have been working on science experiments and activities related to forces, and apparently they love it.
Nearly two hundred kids are participating in the two-week program. The cost to attend kids' college is 280-dollars, but scholarships are available.
