I want to thank PCC and all the other sponsors for making this class happen. My granddaughter was able to participate and it turned out to be the highlight of her summer. As a PCC alumni I was pleased that she had the experiences in the labs and to see two campuses. This is a wonderful program with learning that was fun from start to finish!

This was also the highlight of my daughter’s summer! She was eager to get up in the morning and spend another day learning. The experience was a terrific inspiration to her, thank you for offering such a great program. I’m sure other parents would agree that we need more great programs like this one available to all students!
