Always wanted to help save the world from climate change? Want summer employment working at Canada’s National Parks? Don’t have a major identified yet for your studies? Or aren’t particularly pleased with the major that you have selected?  Join the Associate Dean of the School of Climate Change and Adaptation, Dr. Adam Fenech to find out about UPEI’s newest program of study – the Bachelor of Science in Applied Climate Change and Adaptation on Thursday January 16 at noon in HSB103. A great program that teaches the fundamental sciences but allows you to apply those sciences through the use of drones, virtual reality, geographic information systems, carbon accounting, impact assessment and data analysis. All towards helping our governments, communities, businesses, households and individuals combat climate change. Guess what? The program provides you with two summers of employment working at Canada’s National Parks. And each student receives a free smartphone and tablet for school activities. That’s not all - there are scholarships for students entering into the 3rd year of the program. Find out more and enjoy a free pizza lunch (we’ll even throw in a drink as well). Students only please! Please RSVP at climatechangeadmin@upei.ca so we make sure that we have enough pizzas. Or use that email if you want more information.
