CIMG87683nd Annual High School Youth Summit on Improving the Quality of Life

June 23-25, 2009


Quality of Life is an important topic when examining energy issues, medical care, transportation, or day to day living and poses many critical challenges for Utah and the World.  Join us along with other high school students, researchers and students from the University of Utah College of Engineering, and Utah business leaders for our 3rd Annual Youth Summit.  Learn more about how this important topic impacts many engineering, medical, and political decisions and leads to many of the innovations that we need and enjoy in our daily lives. We encourage you to participate by bringing your innovative ideas to discuss with others in this important summit. Find out about important projects in Chemical, Electrical, Civil and Environmental, Computer, Mechanical, Materials and Bioengineering departments and get a chance to talk with faculty and students.


The Utah Youth Summit will be the voice of Utah’s Youth in providing a recommendation to Governor Herbert and the State of Utah about where YOU think effort should be put into Improving the Quality of life by the state government.  YOUR ideas, thoughts, challenges, and opinions matter.  Join us to make a difference.
