CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Summer will be here before we know it and students will have a break from the classroom, but many parents and caregivers are looking for opportunities to keep children busy and learning in the summer months. 

The University of Northern Iowa is offering a variety of summer camps for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.  Students can choose interest areas in the sciences, arts -- design, literature, music -- business and much more. 

Is your child interested in astronomy and gazing at the stars, obsessed with robotics or fascinated with crime scene investigation (CSI)? Is he or she a talented musician or an aspiring filmmaker? These are just some of the camp topics offered this summer by UNI faculty and students.

"One of my priorities for the year is to ensure that UNI's campus is full of elementary, middle and high school students in the summer," said Gloria Gibson, executive vice president and provost at UNI. "We have exemplary programs and faculty. I want school-age students to be able to participate in interactive learning environments that will stimulate their minds and interests in various subjects."
