The new Summer Scholars Program gives international high school students a two-week look at what it’s like to be an undergrad studying environmental sciences and sustainability at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
Beginning July 15, students are coming from top international schools from around the world — from South Africa, to Costa Rica and Thailand.
The pilot program will present a number of interesting topics to participants and guide them through in-the-field assignments and a symposium presentation to finish the program.
Participants are exposed to a variety of academic topics — from principles of sustainability, humans and our environment and the atmosphere, to cities, freshwater resources and forests.
