The Virtual ExCEL Career Open House Pre-Camp is for students with vison loss eighth (8) grade to seniors (12+) grade and it includes a live hour at 3:00 ET, June 8 and 10, Wednesday and Friday, and is free to all registrants. We will continue to record these sessions so all have the opportunity to learn. Also included are two at-home extension activities. Parents, please register your student for the camp that matches their needs. As parents, you know if they would be more appropriately placed with the age level identified. If you are unsure, we suggest reaching out to your teacher of students with visual impairments. And remember, each student must be registered separately and must meet the definition of blindness in your state.
In this pre-camp, campers will explore various STEM careers. These two days will help you consider the skills (academic and blindness skills) you need to meet the demands of the career, and to explore the pros and cons of these jobs, including other ways to prepare for your life after high school, and entering the workforce. The key to all of it? Your own knowledge, skills, and determination to do hard things.
