Students from some schools in New York are earning college credits and gaining hands-on job experiences through an early-college program with State University of New York, Adirondack. Students in the program can take college courses for free and earn up to 28 credits. They also gain work experience from local employers, such as computer chip manufacturer GlobalFoundries. "This program gives you a great basis for engineering and working hands-on with real-life experiences," high-school student Kasey Hodge said.
