Environmental Science & Technology Practicum

Summer 2019 Session: August 5-9 (Girls Only)

Learn about environmental science, clean technology and associated careers. For one week this summer, high school students participate in hands-on aquatic and terrestrial research while looking ahead to discover educational pathways for environmental science career fields. Join us this summer for a week-long field intensive program that explores these areas and more. For one week we will hike, canoe and discover our local ecosystems.
