Food Systems High School Summer Academy

The Metropolitan Food and Environmental Systems program puts on a one-week summer academy that gives high school students the opportunity to learn about a wide range of factors that are critical for producing healthy, affordable foods, while sustaining our environmental resources.

The academy takes place at the Discovery Partners Institute in Chicago every June and includes hands-on activities and field trips. The topics, activities, and field trips will vary each year, but we do have a sample schedule for reference.

The 2021 summer academy is June 28-July 2, 2021.
