Grant amount:


Ilorin, Nigeria

Both undergraduate and secondary schools will be able have access to state-of-the-art equipment to carry out air protocol research projects. By engaging in projects, students will have the opportunity to become citizen environmental scientists, learning valuable skills and contributing to the greater scientific community. As they work with the grant equipment, students will collect data on air quality in their local communities. They will then upload this data to a centralized database, where it can be accessed by researchers and scientists around the world. In addition, students will be encouraged to present their findings in symposia, allowing them to share their research with their peers and the wider community. This initiative is part of a larger effort to promote environmental education and community engagement. By participating in these projects, students will gain a deeper understanding of the impact of human activities on the environment, and will be better equipped to make informed decisions about their own environmental footprint. By working together with their peers and local community members, students will develop valuable teamwork and leadership skills. This grant from YLACES will represent an exciting opportunity for schools and students to engage in meaningful environmental research and contribute to a global effort to better understand the world around us. Through this initiative, we hope to inspire a new generation of citizen scientists who are passionate about protecting our planet for future generations.
