2016 Engineering and the Environment summer campers with instructors Margarita Acedo and Sarah MooreOn June 28 and 29, CHEE graduate students Margarita Acedo and Sarah Moore led 30 local high school students in applying engineering to real-world environmental problems as part of the UA's Summer Engineering Academy's brand-new Engineering and the Environment Program.

The campers learned the fundamentals of environmental engineering – global and regional concerns related to surface and groundwater contamination issues, remediation methods, sources of contamination, and their health effects.

Acedo and Moore, both second-year chemical engineering doctoral students, learned how to collaborate on preparing a curriculum and earned valuable teaching experience in the environmental engineering discipline.
