The East Valley Institute of Technology’s radio and multimedia programs are hosting free summer school in June and July at Gilbert’s San Tan Village.

Sponsored by Ford's www.drivingskillsforlife.com , the summer school will give students the opportunity to earn 1/2 elective high school credit while learning about radio, audio production, web design, graphic design, photography, video, marketing and more. Students will also create public service announcements about teen driver safety that will be played on EVIT’s radio station, The Pulse at 90.7 FM and 92.7 FM.

The classes will be held in a storefront EVIT is leasing for the months of June and July at the outdoor Gilbert mall. The EVIT storefront, located next to Johnny Rockets and near Harkins Theatres, will also be a place where the public can stop by to learn more about EVIT programs and campuses. Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays.

The classes will be offered in two sessions:

• Session 1 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 5-6, 9-12, 16-19 and 23-26.
• Session 2 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 1-2, 7-10, 14-17 and 21-24.

The classes are open to all students, from incoming ninth-graders in 2014-15 to graduating seniors from the Class of 2014. High school credit is only available to East Valley students.

Special events will be planned daily and tweeted @teenpulseradio on Twitter and posted on www.pulseradio.fm. Special events include Free Doughnut Day, Free Ice Cream Day, Free Makeover Day, video game tournaments, video games provided by Mesa's Golfland/Sunsplash, and a lounge area to chill while watching the NBA or NHL finals and other sporting events.

90.7 and 92.7 The Pulse will broadcast live from the EVIT store all summer with the student DJs providing live interviews and playing requests. Special appearances from local and national celebrities are also being scheduled.
