Sixteen students from around the globe will gather in PIttsburgh for a two-week environmental science and sustainability camp this summer.
Sponsored by Bayer USA Foundation and Bayer Science & Education Foundation in Germany, the camp returns for its 6th year at RiverQuest. Students age 14-16 can apply for acceptance into the program through scholarships awarded by the sponsors.
Students selected for participation can expect two weeks of environmental exploration, adventure and fun while learning about water, climate, energy and environmental sustainability through the exploration of Western Pennsylvania freshwater ecosystems. Students will conduct various water studies with RiverQuest educators onboard EXPLORER, and conduct aquatic field research with Duquesne University's Center for Environmental Research and Education. Other notable features of the two-week academic camp are Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater at Bear Run, Tour-Ed Mine in Tarentum, the Bayer EcoCommercial Building in Robinson, and a special focus on how technology has helped society, in honor of Bayer's 150th Anniversary celebration, Bayer 150 Years: Science For a Better Life.
