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!

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
