    Project Explore is a free quality after-school program offered to 7th grade students who reside in the Shawsheen Valley Regional Vocational Technical School District (Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Tewksbury, and Wilmington).  It is an opportunity for students to visit Shawsheen and explore 6 of the 20 vocational-technical programs over a three-week period.  Bus transportation is provided from each sending middle school, as well as to a bus stop near the attendees home at the end of each day.  The 2024 Project Explore season season will likely feature the following programs: Autobody, Automotive, Bakery, Carpentry, Cosmetology, Culinary, Dental, Electrical, Electronics, Graphic Arts, Health Assisting, Metal Fabrication, and Plumbing.  Featured programs are subject to change; students are assigned to rotate through programs at random.
