EAST PEORIA, Ill -- More than 800 students are spending part of their summer break at college learning, but in a fun way.
Illinois Central College is hosting College for Kids during two week sessions this summer.
Classes vary from cake decorating, hip hop poetry, robotics, and 'totally Gross Anatomy'.
The Totally Gross Anatomy class teaches kids about bodily functions, and on Thursday, the last day, students dissected a pig heart.
The class teacher, Troy Tilly said, "We've made our own snot, we have made a map of the digestive system using yarn so they can see that it's over 30 feet long, all very hands-on things."
Tilly said it's important for kids to keep their brains sharp during the summer and this class is a fun way to do that.
There is one more session of College For Kids in July. For more information visit www.icc.edu/cfk
