James clemens high school guidance – links what is electricity

Gettysburg College is excited to offer several opportunities for high school juniors and sophomores to attend academic camps over the summer months. Subjects include psychology, American government, history, creative writing, or information technology. Please find information to share with your students about our academic camps below:

• Campaigns and Elections Academy – This program is designed for highly-motivated students who have a strong interest in American campaigns and elections. Participants learn about the origins and evolution of democracy in America and gain hands-on experiences related to modern political campaigns.

• Coding for Robotics & Electronics Camp – Students will gain hands-on experiences in coding, wiring, hardware, and building robots through the open source software known as Arduino. Throughout this camp, campers will learn basic electrical engineering, the physics behind electricity, and how to think like a scientist.

• Civil War Institute Summer Conference – The High School Student Scholarship component of Gettysburg College’s annual Civil War Institute summer conference provides high school students an opportunity to explore the history of the Civil War era on the site of the war’s most decisive battle.

Experience Hampshire College to get a sense of it’s innovative approach to learning and what life is like on Hampshire’s campus. Pre-college participants live in the dorms, eat in the dining commons, and are immersed in rigorous and exciting fields of study. Led by current Hampshire faculty, recent graduates, and experienced alumni, pre-college programs are intended for rising high school juniors and seniors.

Led by faculty from the International Language Institute of Massachusetts, we will offer both Beginner Spanish and Elementary Spanish Plus. Both offerings are experiential workshops that include a strong cultural component in which students learn by doing and spend as much time as possible speaking the language, rather than speaking about the language.

Returning for the third summer, this program introduces students to the world of metalworking with an emphasis on hot forging, casting, manipulation, and jewelry-making. Students learn from historical and contemporary examples of this ancient art, and create new works.

This program is a collaboration between the Civil Liberties and Public Policy Program (CLPP) based at Hampshire College and the Soapbox Feminist Camp. It mixes historical and political contexts of activism with exposure to real world careers in social justice and the non-profit sector.

Rising high school juniors, seniors and first-year college students will learn more about entrepreneurship, the idea-generation process, elevator pitches and more. Through engaging lectures and class activities, site visits and guest speakers, students will have the opportunity to earn three credit hours and compete for up to $10,000 in UD scholarship dollars in an elevator pitch competition — all while living on campus and experiencing life in Dayton.

What makes someone a great leader? Open to rising high school juniors, seniors and first-year college students, this two-week experience will help students gain an understanding of the foundations of leadership, assess their leadership behaviors and preferred leadership style, discover the five practices of exemplary leadership and create a personal leadership development plan. This highly interactive session includes extensive discussion and collaborative exchange of ideas, leadership assessments, class and individual exercises, guest speakers and site visits.
