The College Reach Out program at Santa Fe College held its "Soar High" Spring Break Camp last week at the SF College northwest campus. It featured a math and science focus and a partnership with the SF College Engineering Club. Nearly 25 middle school students participated. Campers worked on hands-on math/science projects and built rockets, which were launched on the last day of camp. CROP is a free program that provides students in grades 6-12 with the tools needed to prepare for and succeed in college. CROP has a few spots available. For more information, call 352-395-5268.
