Students who will be juniors attend a two week summer school program at Carl Sandburg College. The topic for the session is career exploration. Students experience field trips, guest speakers and career assessments to help them explore a variety of careers and to guide them in choosing a major in college that will lead them to their chosen career.
In the summer of 2011, eleven students participated in a very busy two weeks at Carl Sandburg College. We visited WQAD television station in Moline, IL, the Illinois State Police Crime lab in Morton, IL and the Monsanto Agronomy Center in Monmouth, IL. We also hosted three guest speakers; Illinois State Trooper Jason Wilson, Dave Burns, Associate Dean of Math & Natural Sciences at CSC and Lauri Wiechmann, Dean of Career, Technical & Health Education at CSC.
