out of this worldHarris County Department of Education’s Center for Afterschool, Summer and Enrichment for Kids, or CASE for Kids, promotes summer learning activities in science and numeracy to help prevent “summer slide” on July 13, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at HCDE’s North Post Oak Building, 6005 Westview.

Summer Learning Day is a national learning event celebrated locally by CASE for Kids with the theme “Afterschool is Out of this World.” Children ages 5-13 attending Harris County summer afterschool programs in childcare facilities and nonprofit organizations will participate to experience a variety of hands-on, engaging activities that promote learning, exploration and skill development.

“This event helps students advance their academic growth during the summer by introducing math and science through challenging games and activities,” said HCDE County School Superintendent James Colbert Jr.

Activities include a portable planetarium from the Houston Museum of Natural Science, a rocket launch and a mock space escape room challenge. Students will also create a special intergalactic substance that they can take home.

Summer Learning Day is an annual national advocacy day led by the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) to elevate the importance of keeping kids learning, safe and healthy every summer.
