Explorations in Engineering & Applied Science Topics and Careers
Consists of four 6-week Saturday mini-courses in Automotive, Professional Sales, Construction & ET, two Intro to Engineering elective classes in the five week Upper Bound summer school. Each course will be heavily project based to provide students with a good understanding of the applicability of their HS academic coursework to the world around them, introduce them to new education and career pathways (and promote the CE classes that would support) and offer the opportunity to learn useful knowledge and skills in a variety of subjects.
