GEAR UP Kentucky Summer Academy@UK is up and running!

GEAR UP Kentucky Summer Academy @UK logoStarting last Sunday afternoon, the GEAR UP Kentucky Summer Academy@UK is up and running! Loads of great pictures on Twitter (look for the hashtag GEARUPatUK) and Instagram taken by @GEARUPToday, @UKUGEd and by the youth and their student development advisors.

The students have begun journaling via WordPress blogs – with a clearer understanding of copyright and intellectual property – thanks to the training by Nicole Sand from The Hive in the College of Arts & Sciences. Take a look at the GEAR UP KY Summer Academy website for a running feed of all their journal entries.

Jenny Wells of UKPR did a nice story on the launch of the Academy@UK in UKnow today “High School Sophomores ‘GEAR UP’ to Become Future UK Students” – read it online here.
