Black holes, time warps and zombie films: All part of learning opportunity at Experience OC
Okanagan College Media Release

What’s the deal with human violence? If you could warp time in a black hole, would you want to? Who started the trend of zombie cinema? Do forensic fingerprints ever disappear? How do you capture sound?

High-school students can ask those burning questions and more at Okanagan College’s Experience OC at the Penticton campus, set for May 8.Experience OC Pen 2019

The annual event invites students in Grades 10 and 11 to become a college student for a day, in a fun environment designed to help them explore the post-secondary world. Students can register in a variety of classes from chemistry, physics and arts, to trades, business and audio engineering.

“Post-secondary can be daunting if you don’t have a chance to explore the campus, meet instructors and tour buildings beforehand. Experience OC is the perfect opportunity for students to get a feel for Okanagan College,” says Eric Corneau, Regional Dean for the South Okanagan-Similkameen. “The Penticton campus likes to roll out the welcome mat to students so they can discover academic, trades and vocational programs that fit best with their interests and future.”

In addition to the hour-long classes, students will be treated to fun activities, snacks and refreshments. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Experience OC events are open to high school students and take place annually at the College’s campuses in Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon.

Students should speak to their high school counsellor to register. More information is online at www.okanagan.bc.ca/experienceoc
