Sharks are sure to circle the halls this summer at Canadian Valley Technology Center’s El Reno Campus. Meanwhile, Robotics and Junior Nanny Camp are examples of courses offered during “Tech Quest” at CV Tech’s Chickasha Campus.
Both ends of CV Tech’s district offer summer half-day camps with multiple week sessions in June and July to students entering fifth through ninth grades during “Tech Quest.”
Shark Tank is one of several dozen week-long themed courses offered at El Reno. The Emmy-winning hit TV entrepreneurial-themed reality show will be scaled down to a pint-sized version that will feature ins-and-outs of starting and running a small business – in this case, a lemonade stand. Students will be challenged to create a lemonade product, logo, and business plan in this fun class that takes place in a “Shark Tank” setting.
“We’re excited to continue providing career exploration activities for our younger community members through Tech Quest,” said Lizzy Moser, a career readiness specialist at CV Tech and one of the event organizers. “It’s a great opportunity for younger students to discover and explore their interests and abilities before they start making choices about their future.”
Enrollment opens at 8 a.m., April 1 for both Chickasha and El Reno.
Cost for each course is $60 in Chickasha and $80 in El Reno. Payment is due at the time of online enrollment at cvtech.edu. Each student will receive a “Tech Quest” T-shirt. Courses begin at 8:30 a.m. each day and end at 12:30 p.m. All available sessions are viewable on the website.
Deadline to register or to drop courses for a full refund is May 24. Questions can be addressed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
