Registration is now open for the popular career exploration themed College of the Canyons Summer Institute, with three sessions running from July 13 to 24.
The College of the Canyons Summer Institute is open to students entering the seventh, eighth and ninth grades.
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 and movie making, education, allied health, video game design, sports medicine, photography, architecture, welding and alternative-energy fabrication.
All Summer Institute instructors are COC professors, student teachers or industry professionals that have tailored their curriculum with junior high and high school 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 Nadia Cotti, Summer Institute coordinator. “It’s an opportunity for your child to discover a potential career path, and have some fun at the same time. You don’t want to let your teenager miss out on this amazing experience.”
All 2015 COC Summer Institute meetings begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 3:30 p.m.
Enrollment fees range in price from $225 to $360 per child per week, depending on the length of the selected track. The 2015 Summer Institute tracks are scheduled:
