“Destination Forsyth Tech” Focuses on Creativity through Technology, Math, Art, and Science

A Summer Enrichment Program for Youth Ages 9–18

 New Classes Added, Scholarships Available

Summers are meant to be fun! Forsyth Tech is offering a four-week summer enrichment program for youth ages 9-18. From concept to creation, students at Destination Forsyth Tech will turn their ideas into finished products which can include bringing their favorite Minecraft characters to life in a short-animated film, designing their own app or creating one-of-a-kind art.

The summer enrichment program is a perfect blend of learning and excitement. Students will explore the physics behind 3-D games, app design, computer gaming, and programming. Also, in addition to technology there are a variety of classes in art, drama, crime scene investigation and “Movie Magic” where students learn techniques used by professional make-up artists to create unique characters.

“These classes are a great way to challenge students and channel their energy into a new aptitude or interest.  They are also learning needed soft skills like collaboration, communication and teamwork in a fun environment,” said Susan Emery, director of Occupational and Summer Programs. “This summer, we have a whole new variety of options for high school students to get ready for the college search or explore their creative side.”

Class topics offered for older youth include – ACT/SAT prep, speedreading to improve your test scores, writing your college essay, 3D printing and modeling, interior design, and career planning.

The summer enrichment program will run July 8 – August 1, 2019. Classes will be held Monday-Thursday from 9 am-12 noon or 1–4 pm and will vary by week at the West Campus, 1300 Bolton Street, Winston-Salem, N.C. 27103. Costs range from $55-$155 per class per week and there are also a limited number of scholarships available.

Before and aftercare classes will be held from 7:45 am-8:45 am and 4:00 pm-5:30 pm.

“This year’s summer enrichment program is shaping up to be bigger and more diverse in its programming than last year with 43 classes offered,” said Emery. “We have received a lot interest in our classes, especially in Minecraft, Virtual Reality, eSports, and Robotics. As the classes are filling up fast, we encourage parents and caregivers to enroll early.”

Class sizes are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
