ROCHESTER, N.Y. —African-American, Latino American and Native American students with hearing loss who are entering 7th, 8th, or 9th grade are invited to Steps to Success, a career exploration mini-camp August 7 – 9 at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
The weekend camp invites students to explore career options that can help prepare them for life after high school. Participants work with experienced counselors and instructors who use both English and sign language, to construct robots, perform science experiments in high-tech labs, and more. Students will stay in residence halls, get a taste of life on campus, and meet other students from around the country.
Parents or guardians are encouraged to stay for the weekend and can get tips to support their student through this time of transition, as well as share experiences and information with other parents of students with hearing loss.
