Baton Rouge Community College will host the three session process technology summer camp - The PTEC Experience - for high school students, beginning July 18, sponsored by Entergy and LED. The high interest camp series will be held at BRCC's Central site, 10700 Hooper Road, Central, and is geared towards all levels of STEM-interested high school students. An Open House will be held on March 21 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for interested students and their parents to learn more about the summer camp. Registration is open and limited spots available in each session. The camp is free, but there is a $55 registration fee.

The first session, June 18-22, is a co-education camp for ninth and tenth grade students. Session two, June 25-29, is a co-education camp for eleventh and twelfth grades students. Session three is a ninth through twelfth grade girls only session - Women in PTEC - July 9-13. All camps run on a half day schedule from either 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. or Noon to 5:30 p.m.

Campers will receive a hands-on experience in process technology; build actual processes and models; learn to utilize tools and equipment; hear from guest speakers; receive real instruction by PTEC professors and college students and attend field trips. The summer program has been refined over the years to help mix rigor, relevance, and most importantly a relationship to the learning experience.
