Emerald Cove Middle School’s Pre-IT Academy students recently enjoyed an inside look at the University of Miami.
Students received a tour of the UM campus, enjoyed lunch in the student dining hall, and visited the cyber security lab and the 3D lab to gain an inside knowledge of what it’s like to be a college student.
Students were fully engaged with some of UM’s College of Engineering student ambassadors putting together workshops, such as circuits to create a keyboard, produce electricity and more.
Other workshops that students attended were college admissions, student life and time management.
Later, at a Miami Heat game, students had an opportunity to go on the court during the opening ceremonies during the national anthem and during half time to give the players a “high five.”
