What’s a CONCENTRATION?

EXPLO Pre-College + Career concentrations provide a deep dive into a subject that lights you up. Whether you want to pursue a career in STEM, law, or business, we’ve got a concentration for you.

Get hands-on experience in the work of the profession with projects created by industry experts who are innovating the future of their fields. Build a functional self-driving car; prepare functional biosynthetic cardiac tissue; investigate a real-life cold case with a renowned forensic expert; dive into the American justice system alongside a state supreme court justice; get coaching from leading business consultants to address problems plaguing actual businesses; design and build an implantable medical device — and so much more.

Students are required to bring a laptop, computer, tablet, or Chromebook with WiFi connectivity to the program. Select concentrations are eligible for college credit.
