LAB INTENSIVES

WCA 2-Day Summer Lab Intensives
Registration Is OPEN!
2-Day Lab Intensives: Students will complete a full year of labs in two intense days. All lab supplies, lab manual, and two days of in-person instruction are included in the fee for the lab intensive. These lab intensives are high school-level labs, and are open to any student able to complete high school level work.

In addition, students will be given access to our online classroom for additional lab and class resources. They will remain a part of this virtual classroom for up to 6 months after the intensive, and are able to submit a formal lab for review at any time during that period. 

 
At the end of the intensive, students will have a full lab manual to show for their hard work and will have earned a full year of lab credit.
