Athens, Ga. – Dozens of young local school students will have the opportunity to explore and develop their creative potential in this fall’s final Challenge Explosion program hosted by the University of Georgia’s Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development on Saturday, Nov. 15.

The courses for this program include “Creative Dynamics,” “Good Bugs! Scary Bugs! Tasty Bugs!,” “Exploring Ancient Egypt,” “Kids-N-Clay Holiday Gift Making,” “Simple Machines with Legos,” “‘Mazing Mice” and “The Kite Makers.”

Tuition for each Challenge Explosion course is $30, with discounts available for families registering more than one child. The courses are scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon, with registration beginning at 8:45 a.m. at the UGA College of Education’s Aderhold Hall.
