Study Your Favorite Tech & Science 

Expand your Science & Technology horizons

This is your chance to explore new skills and experiences in a friendly atmosphere with great teachers and classmates — people who are excited about the same things you are. There are several groups for each course and we’ll make sure you’re in the right one for you.

The choice is yours!

Setting up your day is easy. You'll choose either one course for the whole day, or one course for the morning, 9:30-12:00, and another for the afternoon, 1:30-4:00. A full-day course gives you 25 hours each week, Monday-Friday, to get better at the things you love to do. A half-day course is 12.5 hours of class time.

For example, you might do Engineering & Robotics from 9:30 to 12. Tennis from 1:30 to 4:00. That sounds like a great week. View the full Enrichment schedule to create your custom week.
