Campers will explore career choices
SPINDALE (May 23, 2013) – Students in elementary and middle schools have a chance to learn about more than 25 career choices at Isothermal Community College this summer.
The four-day Career Exploration Camp will focus on exciting job pathways in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Day campers will be divided into two groups – rising third through fifth graders; and rising sixth through ninth graders.
“We are planning so many fun and educational, hands-on activities for the camp,” said Dr. Amber Thompson, Isothermal’s dean of Applied Sciences and Technology and one of the event’s chief organizers. “Enrolling in Career Exploration Camp can help your child learn about professions that he or she may not even be aware of as a career opportunity.”
The camp will be held the week of July 15-18 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day. Parents must attend one of two orientation sessions that will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 6, or Saturday, July 13.
The cost is $65 for a student registered by Friday, May 31; or $75 for a student signed up by the registration deadline of Friday, June 21. The fee includes a camp t-shirt and a snack each day. Students may bring their own lunch or purchase food in the OBH Café on campus.
The areas of exploration include Advertising and Graphic Design, Photography, Broadcasting and Production, Building Construction, Electrical Systems, Electronics Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Architectural Drafting, Criminal Justice, Welding Technology, STEM Education, Collision and Repair, Industrial Systems, Machining, Manufacturing, Health Sciences, Computer Programming, Networking Technology, Web Technologies, Sustainability Technologies and more.
