Know a seventh or eighth grader interested in having an adventure this summer? Berkshire Community College will facilitate one for you, when it offers its "Tech Adventures" program in July.
Free to students and families, the program offers hands-on, interactive activities focused on math, writing and manufacturing. Participants will visit local manufacturing companies to see products and meet employees; there will be a field trip to Windsor, Vt. museums to observe the roots of manufacturing and view glass blowing demonstrations; and there will be recreational activities both on and off the BCC campus.
Lunch and transporation to activities is included, with area drop-off and pick-up sites at 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. at the Allendale Shopping Center and Williams Street Plaza in Pittsfield.
The program runs from Monday, July 12 through Friday, July 23. For more information, contact Kathy Dion at 413-236-5252 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
