     HAMMOND – The Division of Extended Studies at Southeastern Louisiana University has added Web Design to its Zoom into Careers junior high and high school workshops this summer, announced Joan Gunter, assistant vice president for Extended Studies.

     Offered June 18-21 at the Livingston Parish Literacy and Technology Center in Walker, "Zoom into Web Design" will teach students how text, images and videos get from the World Wide Web to computer screens.

     Garrett Wheat, a career and technical instructor for Livingston Parish Public Schools, will help students design and construct a personal web site using HTML coding and the Adobe Dreamweaver software program. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will take the Adobe Dreamweaver certification exam, Gunter added.

     "To provide a quality learning experience, registration will be limited to small groups," said Charlotte Collins, Zoom into Careers coordinator. "Interested students need to register early."

     The workshop is open to all rising 7-12 grade students at a cost of $295. Participants can take advantage of workshop cost discounts by registering during the early bird period, which ends April 27. Registration will continue through June 8 and is available online at www.southeastern.edu/zoom.

     Additional Zoom into Career workshops being held on Southeastern's main campus in Hammond, the Livingston Parish Literacy and Technology Center in Walker, and the St. Tammany Center in Mandeville include "Criminal Justice," "Digital Innovation," "Nursing," "Photography," "Television" and "Theatre."
