Check with your school for more information. Many of the programs are open to anyone!
Spend some time on a real college campus. That kind of learning can't be dull!
Master a new skill. Your local community center, recreational program, or YMCA offers classes on everything from pottery to gymnastics; swimming to zoology!
Ask your parents if it's okay to register for a class that sounds interesting. It is a class, but it's your choice.Why not take up fencing?
Consult the resident experts. Ask your parents if they have time to teach you a new skill:

- Repairing a bike
- Any other skill they may be able to share
They'll be impressed that you want to learn something practical, and everyone will benefit from spending time together.
