Rock Valley College Whiz Kids Engages Young Minds
Since 1980, Whiz Kids has been engaging young minds and providing youth with a variety of educational enrichment opportunities. Whiz Kids classes are designed to provide enrichment activities for youth, cleverly disguised as fun, where students learn by doing and supporting each other in the learning process. Kids are inspired to try new things, build independence, gain social skills, face challenges, learn the value of work, and build character. Whiz Kids classes are taught by experienced educators who have a passion for inspiring kids. The goal of Whiz Kids will always be the same. We are about making sure youth have the time of their lives and create ever-lasting memories. It’s a much needed break from the rigor of the academic year, where we can make creativity, adventure, thrills, smiles, & plain old good times happen.
