Article Body
It’s a summer of fun and learning at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown’s “SummerFun 2006,” July 17 through August 14 for children ages four and older.

Let your children’s dreams run wild learning about bugs and birds to monkey business and rocks to fairies to the sun and the stars- entertaining and delighting all children.

Within the 50 programs, today’s most popular characters such as Dora the Explorer, Dr. Seuss, Curious George, Arthur, Willy Wonka, Cars, and Charlotte’s Web are used to teach children about math, science, geography, art, and reading.  The program also offers popular courses on bugs, fossils, the “Meet Our American Girl®,” and “Harry Potter ® and Friends.”

In the “Fun at The Bottle Works” series, offered in partnership with The Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center, children will have the opportunity to explore new cultures and customs through hands-on classes on topics including Native American tribes, Mexican piñatas, and cookies from around the world.  A course entitled “Global Party” will introduce children to party games, decorations, and traditions from countries including Mexico, India, and Japan.   All “Fun at The Bottle Works” classes are held at The Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center.

“SummerFun 2006” is offered by the UPJ Office of Outreach and Professional Services.

Registrations are now being accepted for the program.  A complete listing is available by visiting the Outreach website at www.upj.pitt.edu/outreach or by telephoning 814-269-2099.
