Virtual Program “Calling All Writers” now offered August 3rd to 7th, 2020

Where can writing take you? Do you love to write? Are you looking for a chance to connect with other student writers and develop your skills?

High school students in grades 9-11 are invited to join us for a week-long virtual writing workshop offered by Michigan Tech Summer Youth Programs and the Michigan Tech Humanities Department.

Using interactive games and activities, we’ll take you on a week-long adventure to explore writing in a variety of forms. You’ll meet current Michigan Tech students, interact with professional writers, and explore writing-related careers. During the week you’ll produce your own writing projects (and we’ll even help you find places to submit them for publication!).

Online group meetings 2 hours in the morning, 10am-12pm, and 1 hour in the afternoon, 2-3 pm EST. Online sessions will be active and engaging, students will be collaborating with each other and the instructors, not just viewing online content.

This course has a registration fee of $225 due at sign-up. To sign up, visit us online and choose course number 52174. If you have questions about this or other virtual Youth Programs please email us at syp@mtu.edu.


Summer Youth Programs now offering Virtual Programs

In our 48-year history of delivering hands-on, engaging, discovery-centric Summer Youth Programs, we have faced and overcome many challenges. The cancellation of 2020 in-person programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic was undoubtedly the most difficult to date. Of course, with challenge comes opportunity, and we are thrilled to announce the launch of virtual Youth Programs (vYP) — the same hands-on, experiential approach we’re known for, delivered in a new way.

We know that learning happens through doing, and our vYP are much more than just screen-time. With a variety of program lengths, learning outcomes, and subject areas, we invite you to explore with us!

Courses include:

  • Calling all Writers!
  • Musical Theater Performance Intensive
  • BEHIND THE SCENES: Technical Training for Professional Theater
  • INTRO TO MUSICAL THEATER: “A day in the life” with U.P. Summer Theater Institute
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering

Additional programs will be added soon. Learn more about our current virtual programs here!
