This program acts as a catalyst for future leaders in environmental sustainability positioning them to have a positive impact on their academic careers going forward. This is an 8-day intensive hands-on introduction for high school students to the salient environmental, economic, and social issues of our time. The focus is to immerse students in a collaborative and experiential learning environment. The students’ “classroom” will be high in Rocky Mountain National Park, along the Cache la Poudre River, out upon shortgrass prairie and exploring the Fort Collins community and CSU research facilities. The program is faculty taught and students will have unique access to leading research in fields of study ranging from ecology and atmospheric science to economics and engineering.
We are seeking current high school students passionate about science and sustainability who are interested in a fun but challenging environment for summer study. Session II has reached capacity with 20 students from all across the country. Interested students are encourage to apply to Session I: June 24-July 1 as soon as possible as spots are very limited.
