Adult learners make up an important part of every college's student population. Adults come to college to start their degrees, finish their education, change careers and more. Adults have different needs and expectations than "traditional" students who enroll right after high school. Come learn best practices from experts and one another on how to best serve adult learners.

Inver Hills will host a GenCyber Camp for K-12 teachers. This engaging camp will offer hands-on labs and a field trip to learn from cybersecurity engineers, plus all participants will receive a free Raspberry Pi computer.
Since 2008, the ultimate goal of Scrubs Camp has been to get students excited and interested in pursuing a career in the health sciences, and to go back home motivated and focused about what they can do in middle and high school to prepare for that potential career.
Students get to interact directly with many working professionals in the field and through field trips, get a tour and experience of what it would be like to work in a particular career field.
Each year there's a new theme for Scrubs Camp with some core sessions being repeated year to year. Students attending camp this year may be exposed to slightly different types of labs and equipment/instruments than students who attended the year before.
