On Friday, February 3, 2017, 26 select 8th grade students from Lincoln Park Academy toured several programs at Indian River State College during Middle School Great Explorations.  These students spent the day gaining valuable hands-on experience in the robotics, photonics, medical services, and computer animation/digital media fields.  The purpose of the trip centered on the connection between secondary education and the world of work, cementing the learning which took place during the 8th grade Naviance activities completed throughout the school year.  Feedback from the students was very encouraging and we can’t wait for next year’s trip!
