Registration is now open for the popular career exploration themed College of the Canyons Summer Institute, with weekly sessions running July 10-14 and July 17-21.
The College of the Canyons Summer Institute is open to students entering junior high school in the fall of 2017. The goal of the Summer Institute is to provide hands-on career exploration and learning opportunities to students in a variety of areas and subjects including robotics, special effects, movie making, video game design, sports medicine, allied health, photography, architecture, welding and engineering/manufacturing.
All Summer Institute instructors are COC professors, student teachers or industry professionals that have tailored their curriculum with junior high students in mind. Each track allows participating students to discover a multitude of career possibilities through a unique blend of innovative lesson plans and fun hands-on activities that are scheduled each week.
“The COC Summer Institute is much more than your typical summer camp,” said Mark Carr, Summer Institute Coordinator. “It’s an opportunity for your child to discover a potential career path, and have some fun at the same time.”
