HAYS, Kan.--The Fort Hays State University Science and Mathematics Education Institute invites young adults entering grades six through nine to participate in a new five-day summer program.

From June 25 to June 29, FHSU will hold its first Art and Science Summer Program focused on roller coasters. Participants of this program will not only learn about the physics of theme park rides, but will also construct and design working model roller coasters. Students will also have the chance to design a marketing plan for their project.

This program, held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day in room 107 of Rarick Hall on the FHSU campus, will encourage unique creativity and originality from all participating individuals.

Students must provide their own sack lunch. The deadline to register for this exciting new program is June 15. Registration costs $60 and space is limited to 35 participants. Online registration is available at www.fhsu.edu/smei under 2012 Art Camp.
