Tracks are career and field of study oriented programs that any student at Sora can enroll in. In our program, as students narrow their fields of interest and begin to pursue more advanced work, they choose a Track from a wide range of fields. Tracks are led by Track Advisors who come from industry and often have multiple years of experience in that particular field. This program is designed for students who are looking to deeply explore their selected field and want to receive focused mentorship and resources.
In Tracks, students work on guided industry-focused projects, receive career mentorship, and explore their chosen field. Students who participate in a Track replace their Independent Project with a Track project, the theme of which depends on their chosen Track.
Students meet with their Track Advisor multiple times every week for guidance and to get input on their projects alongside other students in their Track. Track Advisors will also meet with students 1:1 outside of their group meeting time and be available to answer questions. Students that participate in Tracks also work on their core academic requirements through Independent Projects and Learning Expeditions.
In the Engineering Track, students design and execute projects across hardware, biomedical, mechanical, and computer engineering. The goal of the Engineering Track is expose students to broad engineering disciplines while they build a portfolio of career-readiness projects. Here, students work on a variety of hardware focused projects like building remote-controlled cars, prototyping a measuring tool with lasers, designing an environmentally friendly city, and so much more. Supporting our Engineering Track is a network of engineers from SpaceX, MIT Media Lab, Georgia Tech, the Center for Disease Control, and beyond.
In the Design Track, students learn core visual design principles and work on projects that can range from visual and graphic design to architectural interior design to sketching and illustration. The goal of the Design Track is for students to learn core visual design principles and build a design portfolio for their resume and external work opportunities within design. Our Design Track program is also supported by professionals from Mentor Network from the Royal College of Art, Washington University in St. Louis, Guild Quality, Coda Labs, and the Savannah College of Art and Design.
We will continue to add additional Tracks throughout 2021. The next Track we will offer is Design. By Fall 2021, our program will offer these Tracks: Engineering, Design, Writing & Literature, History, Entrepreneurship, Computer Science, Healthcare, Law.
