Grant amount:


Through this grant, students from the Tala Technological and the Jose Alonso y Trelles Secondary Schools and their teachers will be educated about issues of water quality, particularly in their community, take water quality measurements, analyze the results, and produce posters to educate their community about these results. Grant funds will provide water monitoring equipment, other materials, and transportation to the measurement site.


Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

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.
