A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution:

The Summer of Apps is a 10-week, full-time summer research experience in which students learn how to design sustainability-related mobile applications. Past apps include: a plant selection app for local gardeners and naturalists, a healthy homes app (focused on indoor air quality and child health), a farmers market app for Urban Harvest (local non-profit), a campus art app (UH public art collection), and a volunteer management app (for non-profits to manage volunteers). The summer fellows are exposed to new approaches in business, computer science, and design while also connecting to their community and local non-profit organizations.
