2017 Sustainability Academy
Join us from July 24 - July 27, 2017
This academy focuses on the growing need to promote sustainable building practices, technologies, policies and standards to build an environmentally responsible, economically profitable, and healthy future for the region. The 2017 academy will feature a theme of biomimicry.
Students will experience interactive workshops, hands-on demonstrations in our state-of-the-art labs, and tours of high performance buildings. The final day of the academy will feature a panel session in which experts from the leading sustainable companies and organizations will share their expertise, personal experiences and answer questions along with a student competition. Students will leave with a better understanding of biomimicry and how it fits into sustainability and is applied in the real world as well as what career opportunities they can pursue.
During this four day academy, students will stay in UNO residence halls with meals provided as well as extracurricular activities such as a movie night and bowling.
This year's academy is limited to 40 participants. High school students are selected based upon academic achievement as well as extracurricular involvement and leadership experience.
