UW Summer 2018 WaterWorks program: *Invitations for HS teachers and students* (Apply Now)

CEE Students:  Please share widely. 

Here is a wonderful opportunity for a FREE summer program for high school students and teachers.  UW Civil & Environmental Engineering professor Michael Dodd is again offering “WaterWorks”, a weeklong environmental engineering workshop (one separate workshop each) for students and STEM teachers.  Even though the announcement below says this is aimed for Seattle-area students and teachers, all are invited, but the program is unable to cover expenses for travel or lodging, or provide a stipend for attendance.   Please encourage students and STEM teachers to apply!  WaterWorks is a high caliber NSF-supported program. 

Dear All,

I just wanted to ask if you could help spread the word to potentially interested high school teachers and students about the 2018 edition of the WaterWorks environmental engineering workshop program that I host here in More Hall each summer.

As in previous years, the program is aimed at Seattle-area high school STEM teachers and 11th-12th grade students, and consists of a 1-week workshop for teachers and a 1-week workshop for students – each designed to introduce participants to various aspects of water supply and treatment through a mix of labs, lectures, and field trips.

The dates for this year’s workshops are 8/13-8/17 for teachers, and 8/20-8/24 for students. I am targeting an application deadline of 6/22, so hopefully there is plenty of time for anyone who is interested to apply. Flyers for this year’s workshops are attached for distribution, and additional details on the program (including application forms and resources from the prior years’ workshops) are available at: http://faculty.washington.edu/doddm/Personal/WaterWorks.html

Please pass this along to anyone (family, friends, colleagues, etc.) who you think might be interested. As always – thanks very much for your help!

Best regards,
