If summer school doesn’t sound like your idea of fun, think again. Pace is offering classes and workshops for faculty and staff as well as a summer program for techie teens.
This summer, spruce up your skills, learn new techniques, and head back to the classroom for a variety of classes offered through the Office of Continuing and Professional Education (CPE). Need to excel at Excel? Learn business writing and e-mail etiquette? Pace has got you covered. Whether you are looking to enhance your skills, contemplating a career change, updating your resume, or opening your mind to something you have always dreamed of learning, CPE has the courses, certificates, and professional training opportunities for you. Learn more about CPE’s summer courses at www.pace.edu/CPE.
Have a tech inclined teen at home? Check out the 11th annual Seidenberg Summer Scholars program that affords high school aged teens the opportunity to come to campus and learn from the professionals. Geared toward top high school students with an interest in computing, this program allows students to leverage computing technologies to build software and apps that provide solutions to emerging societal problems. Based on an integrated academic, service, and cultural model, students can choose to earn three college credits toward a Pace/Seidenberg degree for their academic work or earn community service hours. For more information about the program, visit www.pace.edu/seidenberg.
On the Westchester Campus? Check out the GenCyber Workshop offered by the Seidenberg School. As a part of its outreach activities in cybersecurity and in STEM, Pace University is proud to host the GenCyber program for a second consecutive year. Supported by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation, the GenCyber program provides summer cybersecurity camp experiences for students. This dynamic, co-ed, interactive, and mission-driven one-week camp introduces high-school students to the basics of cybersecurity using various pedagogical approaches, including storytelling, hands-on labs, and problem-solving missions. Each day, high school students act as Navy personnel engaged with various missions that require solving problems using the SeaPerch Robotics System (an underwater robot) and cybersecurity. Applications for this free program are due no later than April 29. Learn more about GenCyber here.
