Okanagan College Media Release

Experience OC Pen 2018Is time travel possible? How are video games made? Is homicide a brain disorder? How did zombies eat their way to the silver screen? What keeps an airplane in the sky? 

High-school students from across the South Okanagan region will converge upon Okanagan College’s Penticton campus May 1 to find the answers to these questions and more when they spend a day on campus and experience what it’s like to be a student for a day.

The College is opening its doors once again and inviting students in Grades 10-12 to attend Experience OC for a day of learning, fun and post-secondary exploration. Students can choose to register from among more than 20 classes, ranging from animation to physics, astronomy to practical nursing, criminology to geography and more.

“Experience OC is an excellent opportunity for students to explore a variety of areas of interest and get a sense of what Okanagan College has to offer,” says Eric Corneau Regional Dean for the South Okanagan-Similkameen. “The College offers a wide variety of programs in trades, academic diplomas and degree options and this event is a perfect way for high-school students to think about post-secondary.”

In addition to the hour-long classes, students will be treated to fun activities, snacks and refreshments. The event takes place from 10:15 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Registration is now open.

For more information and to register your attendance and class choices, students should speak to their high-school counsellor for login information and permission slips. Class schedules and descriptions can be found at okanagan.bc.ca/ExperienceOC.
