Each June, the program offers two summer programs: one for middle school students and one for high school students. Events and programs vary annually, but always include academic enrichment, campus visits, and career exploration. Recent summer activities include:
High school students attended a trip to Omaha, Nebraska for two days of educational fun! They took a tour of Metropolitan Community College of Nebraska and Creighton University. In between visits students also got to tour Kutak Rock Law Firm, Creighton University School of Law, and Wells Fargo. At Wells Fargo, they learned about the various careers in Finance, along with the numerous services offered by the company. The visit at Creighton University School of Law included an interactive mock lecture with a law professor. Before heading home, we spent our last few hours at the Omaha Zoo!
Middle school students spent three days in Emporia learning about the economics, conservation, treatment, chemistry, and natural science of water. They had presentations from the Jones Aquatic Center, K-State Extension office, Johnson County Community College, and Schlitterbahn. Students worked on water activities that included a tour of the Water Treatment Plant, calculating time and speed while riding Schlitterbahn rides, and experiments in a JCCC chemistry lab.
