CASSC to offer upcoming programs for area students

CASSC and NOYCE Scholars to present Science Seminars for area students

The Catskill Area School Study Council and SUNY Oneonta NOYCE Scholars will present “Science Seminars” as part of CASSC’s enrichment program on campus. This is a 4-week program offering hands-on explorations in Biology, Physics and Earth Science for students in grades 6 – 9.

Each week, small teams of students will explore contemporary and classical physics, biology, and earth science concepts through hands-on investigations. Challenging mathematics and analysis of data with computers will be incorporated into the lessons. All sessions will include discussion of career pathways within the topics studied. The program will be taught by teams of college students who are training to become middle and high school mathematics and science teachers.

For more information, contact Suzanne Swantak-Furman, CASSC Executive Coordinator, or Jarrin Hayen, Assistant Coordinator, at 436-2533 or your local school.

CASSC offers SAT Prep Course this Fall

The S.A.T. Preparation Course helps prepare students to take the S.A.T. College Entrance Examination. The course will assist students in pinpointing their strengths and weaknesses. The course also provides strategies to use and practice to improve S.A.T. examination scores. Two instructors team-teach the class, alternating between the math and the language arts sections of the exam. We offer instructors in the classroom, as opposed to online classes.  Students will receive corrections and feedback on written assignments. They also receive a  textbook in order to do additional independent studying between class sessions, and to  continue preparation for the exam after the course has ended. Each seminar runs from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30am for six consecutive weeks. Please contact CASSC or your local school for more information. Registration deadline is October 3rd.
