2020 CTE Career Exploration Summer Camp (Virtual Pilot)
The purpose of the CTE Summer Camp is to expose middle school students to careers in the Energy & Utilities, Information Technology and Transportation industry sectors, as well as opportunities in higher education. All modules address applied mathematics/science involved in the selected fields. A pre-culminating experience will be a college/career orientation that will include a campus tour and student panel.
- Participating middle school students will work in teams to develop projects within three California Industry Sectors. Each activity is facilitated by college faculty assisted by current college students. All activities are hands-on and contextualized.
- Participating districts: El Monte City School District, El Rancho Unified School District and Little Lake City School.
For Summer 2020, we will pilot a small virtual summer camp. We hope to return Summer 2021 to serve all our partner school districts.
