SANTA CLARITA — Registration is now open for the popular career exploration themed College of the Canyons Summer Institute, with three sessions running throughout the month of July.

The College of the Canyons Summer Institute is open to students entering the seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth grades. The goal of the Summer Institute is to provide hands-on career exploration and learning opportunities to students in a variety of areas and subjects including: robotics, motion picture special effects, video game design, sports medicine, digital photography, architecture, welding and alternative energy fabrication.

All Summer Institute instructors are COC professors, student teachers or industry professionals that have tailored their curriculum with junior high and high school students in mind. Each track allows participating students to discover a multitude of career possibilities through a unique blend of innovative lesson plans and fun hands-on activities that are scheduled each week.

“The COC Summer Institute is much more than your typical summer camp,” said Adriana Estrada, Summer Institute coordinator. “It’s an opportunity for your child to discover a potential career path, and have some fun at the same time. You don’t want to let your teenager miss out on this amazing experience.”

The 2013 COC Summer Institute will run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. from July 15 through Aug. 2, and will consist of the following three one-week sessions:

Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19 — Junior High

Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26 — Junior High

Monday, July 29 through Friday, Aug. 2 — High School

Enrollment fees range in price from $160 to $180 per child per week, depending on each track’s associated materials fee.
