GENEVA, N.Y.—Hobart and William Smith Colleges' latest addition to its summer programs offerings is the Elizabeth Heaton Summer Institute. The program is founded in honor of Elizabeth Heaton, whose sensitivity to community brought to Geneva programs such as Head Start, Ontario Day Care Center, and the Boys and Girls Club. The Institute is a one-week creative and scientific program designed for youth ages 12- through 16-years-old.
The academic summer program is intended to challenge young minds and talent in the pursuit of knowledge. Classes range from Art and Expression (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; $125), Art and Gesture (8:30 – 11:30 a.m.; $125), and Nature Writing (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; $125) to Polymers and Plastics (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.; $125) and Rabbit Ears to Radiators (1 – 4:30 p.m.; $75).
