Registration Open for 2014 Summer Institute
Registration is now open for the popular career exploration themed College of the Canyons Summer Institute, with two sessions running during the month of July.
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, video game design, sports medicine, healthcare, digital photography, architecture, 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.”
The 2014 COC Summer Institute will run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 14 through July 25, and will consist of two one-week sessions:
- Monday, July 14 through Friday, July 18
- Monday, July 21 through Friday, July 25
Enrollment fees are $225 per class, which includes all materials and a camp T-shirt.
