Students will be virtual tour guides planning a trip for someone going around the world. They will create an itinerary that includes locations, prices, and attractions. While planning the tour, students will research historical routes, maps and events. In addition, GPS maps, atlases and online resources will provide images of current landmarks and other geographic features.  

Course-3: •  Becoming a Better Learner 

How does learning change when you have thousands of potential teachers across the world at your beckoning call and can access the sum of human knowledge from the palm of your hand? This course will help you develop expertise in a process that capitalizes on these affordances.Being able to use online resources effectively for learning is an invaluable skill for academic growth and personal enrichment. Through an interactive, problem- based approach, this course will empower you to leverage online resources in order to drive your own learning. 


Course-4: •  Science Workshop
 
With the increasing emphasis on science and technology in our world today, it is imperative our students develop skills to acquire and analyze information.  In this science workshop students will explore their science interests while developing reasoning skills. We will also be discussing current events in science and learning the proper use of lab equipment.  Students will conduct experiments of their own design, analyze the data, and present their findings to the class in a poster session.  

Session-2 (June 19 – June 30)  *Only one course can be chosen in this session

ADMISSIONS

Completed applications will be reviewed beginning in January.

Admissions for summer program are rolling and will remain open as long as space is available. Applications received after enrollment is full will be placed in a space available waiting pool.

While summer enrollment does not guarantee acceptance into Assets’ Fall session, it does provide an optimal opportunity for students, parents and the school to evaluate whether or not Assets is an appropriate placement for a particular student.  For Fall enrollment, priority will be placed on enrolling appropriate applicants from the summer program on a space-available basis.
