As the semester draws to a close, the Center for Pre-College Outreach (CPCO) invites faculty and staff to start thinking summer—Summer Youth Programs (SYP). Applications are now live online, and we have another exciting year of programming to offer all of the #FutureHuskies in your life.
Since 1972, SYP has opened the doors for thousands of students to engage in the excitement of summer explorations ranging across the STEM fields, even dipping into areas like business, social sciences and outdoor adventures. The 2019 programs will offer more than 50 explorations and seven competitive scholarship programs for students currently enrolled in grades 6-11.
This year, SYP is introducing a few new explorations to the course lineup including:
- Calling All Writers—an introduction to writing across disciplines—high school
- From Idea to Market—combining design thinking and entrepreneurship—high school
- Engineering Technology 101—a deep dive into the disciplines within the School of Technology—high school
Each exploration is a week long, with programs beginning June 16 and ending Aug. 3. Children and grandchildren of faculty/staff are eligible for a one-time $50 discount on the cost of an exploration. For more information on SYP camps, explorations or scholarship opportunities, visit our brand-new website or call the CPCO office at 7-2219.
