Launch Program

Summer Programs

The Launch Program offers two summer programs for recent high school graduates transitioning to college. For more information, contact our Transition Specialist, who designs and coordinates these programs.

Our Summer Bridge participants had fun learning STEM concepts through LEGO robotics. SJC AISES challenged the participants to program their robots to play golf, follow a path using the sensors, and as seen in this video - climb stairs!
