Environmental Engineering and Sustainability (All-Female)

This camp runs July 21st – 28th, 2019

Environmental Engineering and Sustainability camp is a residential one-week camp for rising 10th to 12th grade women.

The camp focuses on designing sustainable technological solutions for critical environmental and energy challenges of the 21st Century. Through a series of team activities, lab exercises and field trips, campers have the opportunity to learn about studying and careers in civil and environmental engineering and about topics such as:

• Sustainability and how the environment, culture, society, and economics are all linked
• Environmental pollutants and the biogeochemical cycles they follow as they move through the air, water and soil
• Climate change
• Renewable energy sources and energy efficiency
• Water resources and clean water technologies
• Water-Energy-Food nexus
• Air quality monitoring from ground and satellites

Our camp faculty are Dr. Sotiria Koloutsou-Vakakis, and Professor Megan Konar of the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). Dr. Koloutsou-Vakakis’ research interests are in air quality and land – atmosphere interactions. Professor Konar’s interests are in policy aspects of managing water, food, and trade.
