The Environmental Engineering and Sustainability 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 research and careers in civil and environmental engineering. Topics might include:

 

• 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

From previous years:

Camp Coordinators: Dr. Sotiria Koloutsou-Vakakis and Professor Megan Konar are faculty in 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.
