Future City Inc.

Elizabeth, New Jersey

Grant amount:


Future City Inc. (FCI) will use a second portable air quality monitor in their Walking in Elizabeth (NJ) project. This project will use citizen science to address a community environmental health concern. Students will use the requested equipment together with another monitor, provided through a YLACES grant in 2018, to document ambient air quality in the area. At least some of the students are expected to document their results in an Environmentors poster and presentation. The student investigation will also be presented to at least 500 fellow students.


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.
