Video: Eastpointe High School offers unique after-school career readiness program

C2 Pipeline Club offered by 25 schools through Wayne State University

An after-school program is offering Eastpointe High School students opportunities to explore different technology and career paths.

WDIV’s 4Frenzy isn’t just about highlighting sports, we also focus on clubs, academics and performing arts.

And this week, our Kim DeGiulio introduces us to a program at Eastpointe High School that is giving students a look at different careers and hobbies that you don’t always learn about during a normal school day.

Watch the video report above to see what it’s all about.

It’s called C2 Pipeline Club and it is a college and career readiness program that incorporates S.T.E.M. in a project based, hands-on learning environment with a focus on health careers.

Eastpointe High School is one of 25 schools to offer the C2 Pipeline Program through Wayne State University. The club’s teacher, Sylvia Marburger, says she has the best job in the world overseeing the class.

“It gives them the opportunity that they otherwise might not have,” said Marburger.

Students also learn about fashion design, how to code, 3D printing and more.

“They will take the skills that they’re learning, the design skills, interpersonal skills, and confidence in knowing themselves and knowing that they’ve tried things, that they know whether or not they like them,” Marburger added.

Remember: You can vote once per hour for your favorite students and staff members until Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 11 p.m.
