Academy Opportunity for High School Youth

by rochelle on Nov. 20th, 2012 No Comments

Do you have a student who is enthusiastic about science and the environment?

The Academy is now accepting applications for PART 2 of our Problems with Plastics program!

In this after-school program, high schoolers will work with our Digital Learning team, Academy experts, and local businesses to understand the role plastics play in our communities here in San Francisco. Youth will conduct research and make data driven decisions on how they can make a difference on the ecological landscape of San Francisco.

The experience will culminate on Earth Day weekend when the youth will unveil their plan for impact to all who attend the Academy’s Earth Day celebration!


The program will run from January 7, 2013 through April 20, 2013, twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00 – 6:00 pm, and on the 4th Saturday of every month (10:00 am – 4:00 pm).

We are accepting ONLY 6 high school students from any school in the Bay Area. Participants will be chosen on a rolling basis so youth need to apply quickly by clicking here!
