The third annual Innovation Grant Internship poster session will take place on Monday, Dec. 17, from 10:45 a.m. to noon at the Global Water Center at Foyer, 247 West Freshwater Way. Interns at the Global Water Center from Milwaukee Marshall High School will present their work.
This program is funded through the Marquette Innovation Grant “Environmental Sustainability: Increasing Underrepresented Student Research in the Field of Environmental Engineering.” This program aims to train high school students, who are historically underrepresented in environmental engineering, to conduct research that focuses on reducing contaminant concentrations in drinking water. In addition to raising drinking water quality awareness, the high school program creates a robust pipeline of students pursuing water technical careers by affording them the opportunity to intern at the Global Water Center.
