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.

- Adventures in Veterinary Medicine
- CSI: Fingerprinting and Identification
