Courses will be taught by GSSM faculty, college and university professors, and professionals in their respective fields. “This summer we’re excited to offer 26 unique classes, eight of which are brand new,” says Susan Engelhardt, GoSciTech director. “For example, a course like Carolina 201 at the Darlington Raceway provides an opportunity to teach complex engineering concepts in a fun, hands-on setting.
This type of learning environment is engaging to students and delivers a more meaningful experience. That’s what GoSciTech is all about!” Acceptance to the GoSciTech program is based on academic achievement. Rising 8th, 9th and 10th graders who have demonstrated scholarship in science, math, computer science, technology or engineering, and desire an academically challenging experience are strong candidates.
