DENTON (UNT), Texas -- Learn how to make a robot, discover more about the stars or find out how crime scene investigators identify fingerprints at Grandparents University®, a two-day summer camp offered by the University of North Texas.

Grandparents -- or other family members -- and their young ones from ages 7 to 12 are invited to pick two out of 10 "majors," where they get hands-on experience learning about robotics, computer animation and more. Campers have the option of staying in a university residence hall, where they can get an authentic taste of college life.

Now in its sixth year at UNT, Grandparents University® in past years has drawn campers from around the Dallas-Fort Worth area and as far as Boise, Idaho.

This year's classes include:

  • Robotics
  • Astronomy
  • Adventures in Veterinary Medicine
  • CSI: Fingerprinting and Identification
  • 3-D Constructions
  • Mean Green Geocaching
  • Apparel Merchandising
  • Computer Animation
  • Disaster and Emergency Preparedness
