The Early College High School Program, a joint venture between the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos and Los Alamos High School, still has a few openings for its June 9-13 session, according to a news release.
The program allows students to explore a variety of career options in science, technology, engineering, math and health sciences through hands-on learning activities.
The topics to be covered include biofuels/biological sciences, digital media, emergency medicine/fire science, engineering, environmental science, health sciences, immunology, public safety, robotics and welding.
A fun, unifying theme in each session is the threat of a zombie apocalypse, and how each of these disciplines might be used to thwart the impending invasion.
“The events we have this summer are just an introduction to the Early College High School program,” said Grace Willerton, an Accelerate Career and technical advisor at UNM-LA. “We are hoping to get students interested in a career, so when they get to high school, they consider the Early College High School program.
