MORE: Another COVID-19 side effect: Many kids head to summer school
Karly Hou founded Wave last year, when the pandemic and lockdown first stranded students at home, most with limited learning opportunities. With other students from some of America's top colleges, Hou recruited instructors to teach to their passion subjects online to middle and high schoolers.
These aren't your ordinary academic subjects. Offerings this summer include: Let's Make a Zine, Subtle Asian Cooking & Baking and How to Think Like a Genius 2.0.
There will be several waves of courses.
Hou was recently on ABC7 News' "Getting Answers" and talked with ABC7 News anchor Kristen Sze about how Wave may work for your student.
