Wonderworks Pre-College Summer Programs
- Houston, TX
Held on the campuses of either Rice University or the University of Houston, Wonderworks’ Houston summer programs enable students to explore a variety of subjects.
For example, students interested in architecture might check out From the Ground Up. This program combines lectures and field trips with daily building projects. History or politics more your thing? Closer Looks, an exploration of art and art history, Good Vibrations, which focuses on music history and appreciation, or Rules of the Game, a deep-dive into democracy via history, law, and philosophy, could be excellent options.
There are choices for our fine arts-focused friends, too. Moving Pictures provides an introduction to production, editing, screenwriting, and cinema criticism. In addition to working in small groups to create short features, students enjoy daily movie screenings & discussions. Finally, Story Lines teaches students how to read fiction and watch movies like a writer. Accordingly, close attention is paid to storytelling techniques.
Admission is competitive. Consequently, students must possess at least a 3.0 GPA, competitive standardized test scores, and high achievement within relevant subjects.
