Bridge to the Future
Opportunity for 9-12 Students who are Deaf/HH
Online Summer STEM Mentoring and Career Exploration
The Educational Resource Center on Deafness (ERCOD) has a new ONLINE summer course for
currently enrolled Texas area 9th-12th grade students beginning on June 8th, 2015 – July 31st, 2015. This
new online course is called: Bridge to the Future: STEM Mentoring and Career Exploration. Students
will be exploring a variety of topics related to STEM careers and training requirements, learning basic
program coding, building computers or robots using maker kits and meeting a STEM field mentor via
videoconferencing or in person. Students will complete the course with a portfolio including their course
work and career plans.
Please note there are only 2 weeks until the Bridge to the Future course begins! This is a very short
processing time and therefore due dates for all applications, recommendation forms and registrations will
come quickly and without a lot of leeway. We apologize for the quick pace needed but it will be well
worth it for the students who participate.
