Children from ages 7 to 11 can learn about world history and the evolution of science in two College for Kids classes at Western Nevada Community College Douglas. Both classes are on Fridays from October 15-December 17, except October 29 and November 26.
"Leaders and Legends, Survey of World History" follows history from 500 B.C. and covers historical figures such as Alexander the Great, Caesar and Cleopatra, Cortez, Queen Victoria and Mahatma Ghandi. The fee for the class (CFK 118, Sec. D01) is $60. Time is 3:30-5:30 p.m.
"How Things Work, The History of Science" investigates important inventions and why they were significant. Students will begin in ancient Greece and move on to learn about Rome's navy and why the Romans used the arch in almost everything they built. Other topics include turbines in dams and how they make electricity and why there is no air on the moon. The science class (CFK 112 D01) is from 6-7:30 p.m. The fee is $70. Students who enroll in both classes can bring sack lunches and eat during the break.
