Each week the student will explore one of their selected programs with hands-on and classroom teaching. Math and Language Arts will be included in the classroom teaching to assist with summer school needs.

Each class has a project that the students’ study and complete weekly: Automotive – (car racers); Alternative Energy – solar ovens; Construction – building bridges and towers; Computers – programming games; and Health Science – studying the digestive system and making their own systems.

“Students are deciding career paths at an earlier age, so we thought this would provide younger ones an opportunity to see a variety of choices,” stated David Webber, Director of Career & Technical Education.

The area sending schools will bus students to Crowder and back to their respective school district location during summer school hours to make this opportunity available.
