Led by Dr. Chrys Egan, SU associate professor of communication arts, highlights include an exploration of the University’s sustainability initiatives and travel to off-campus sites, such as NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility and regional high-tech businesses, to learn about technology in action.

The academy culminates with a lunchtime presentation on campus and a poster session at the Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District’s monthly 3rd Friday celebration in downtown Salisbury from 5-8 p.m. August 18.
