Ohlone for Kids and Teens Offers Fun & Enriching Courses for Summer 2016 - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—This summer instead of playing video games, let your kids design their own video games at Ohlone for Kids and Teens. Now in its 27th year, the award-winning Ohlone for Kids and Teens summer enrichment program continues to offer a variety of classes and workshops geared to your child’s interest. The fun, interactive environment will get kids and teens excited to attend and keep their academic skills honed and ready once school begins again.
The Ohlone for Kids and Teens program caters to students entering grades 3-11. Kids who like to build and create will enjoy the LEGO © Robotics class; language enthusiasts can learn Spanish or ASL; and curious technological minds will love the Game App Design course. High school students can take PSAT and SAT Prep courses or get an early start with AP Biology and expository writing. The program provides a great opportunity to meet students with similar interests and to build confidence in a safe and supportive environment.
"Course offerings are aligned to the requests of parents, students and teachers in the Tri-Cities area," says Charmaine Do, Director of Ohlone for Kids and Teens. “Based on last year’s requests, we are offering more computer programming and robotics courses. We also added new and innovative courses including Marine Engineering and Getting Wired with MaKey MaKey.”
Returning by popular demand, Middle School Career Exploration Week helps middle school and high school students develop interest in degree and career pathways and gain hands-on lecture and lab experience, choosing from fields including health, biotechnology, and engineering. The Career Exploration Week is held August 8 through 11 at the Ohlone College Newark Center.
In addition, Ohlone for Kids classes are offered in three sessions at Ohlone College in Fremont and Cesar Chavez Middle School in Union City. Online registration has begun. Classes run from June 20 through August 4.
