Summer internship program

Our 10-week summer internship program is open to current students and recent graduates from any college or university.

Math Science Leadership LogoWe currently have one UW Tacoma environmental science class hosted at CUW during the summer quarter. 


Pre-college opportunities

While we don't have any programs focused on younger students, we work with and support the Math-Science-Leadership (MSL) program, which serves grades 7-12.


NOTE: Our research group is based at the Center for Urban Waters in Tacoma, which is approximately two miles from the UW Tacoma campus.  Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from Urban Waters.
