Do Science, Learn Science
YLACES seeks to develop citizens with
scientific habits of mind, utilizing the environment as a learning laboratory where students conduct inquiry-based research and contribute to a better collective understanding of our changing world.
Grants range from equipment and supplies for taking environmental measurements to recognition and support for students presenting their research projects and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
The goal of SRSes is to build students' scientific and research abilities. Students presenting their research at one of the symposia are treated as scientists and therefore see themselves as scientists.
Our grantees are those working with youth to do research projects through environmental citizen science are invited to submit proposals for support to help their efforts.
