Project Explore 2024


    Each session is capped at 175 students and is filled on a first-come-first-serve basis. A waitlist will generate once full.

    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 will feature the following programs: Advanced Manufacturing, Automotive, Bakery, Carpentry, Cosmetology, Culinary, DVC, Electrical, Graphic Arts, Health Assisting, Masonry, Metal Fabrication, and Plumbing.  Featured programs are subject to change, and students are assigned to a rotation at random.
