The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Research Triangle Park, N.C., will host its 14th annual Environmental Science Summer Institute June 10-14, 2024. This free one-week program will inform participants about how EPA protects human health and the environment, and will emphasize interactive and hands-on experiences, tours of campus facilities, and networking with EPA professionals. 
EPA’s campus in Research Triangle Park is home to national and international experts in many fields, including air, energy, ecosystems, health, and sustainability. As the largest facility ever built by EPA, our buildings cover nearly 1.2 million square feet and house more than 2,000 employees. Participants will hear directly from our scientists and engineers about their cutting-edge research that serves to support EPA’s mission of protecting human health and the environment. During the Institute, participants will be exposed to the many EPA careers in the environment, science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Students will also meet employees in other careers that support EPA science, including administration, policy, and communications.
