SHERMAN, TEXAS--All area children in kindergarten through 8th grade are invited to Austin College's monthly 'Roo Bound event Saturday, January 18, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The focus for January is "Secrets in the Kitchen," and participants will hear from Austin College faculty and students in a January Term course by that name that highlights the various elements of chemistry that are part of everyday cooking.

Advance registration is not required, but is appreciated. For more information or to reserve a spot for the program, contact the Austin College Service Station at 903-813-2333 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. weekdays.

Students may be dropped off at 11 a.m. at Zauk Circle, off Grand Avenue, where they will be met by program leaders. The visit includes free lunch for children in the Austin College dining hall in Wright Campus Center, courtesy of the Service Station and Aramark Food Service. Parents do not need to remain with the children, but may if they wish. Parents may eat lunch in the dining hall for $6.50. Children will be escorted to Zauk Circle for pick up at 2 p.m.
In addition to a special learning opportunity for children, 'Roo Bound, coordinated by the Austin College Service Station but involving many students across campus, is designed to expose children to the idea of college in a safe, fun environment. The organizers hope that the program makes college attendance (at any college, not just Austin College) seem accessible to children, particularly those who might be the first in their families to consider college.
Faculty members for "Secrets in the Kitchen" are John Richardson of the chemistry faculty and Kelly Reed of the biology faculty. The chemist and microbiologist each had taught a similar class on their own during previous JanTerms and decided to try working together this year. Local media reported on the class earlier this week. See the KXII-TV report and the story in the Herald Democrat.
'Roo Bound events are scheduled each month at Austin College. For details contact the Service Station staff at 903-813-2333.
Austin College is a leading national independent liberal arts college located north of Dallas in Sherman, Texas. Founded in 1849, making it the oldest institution of higher education in Texas operating under original charter and name, the College is related by covenant to the Presbyterian Church (USA). Recognized nationally for academic excellence in the areas of international education, pre-professional training, and leadership studies, Austin College is one of 40 schools profiled in Loren Pope's influential book Colleges That Change Lives.
