Stuyvesant High School

Grant amount:


New York, New York

Our proposal seeks funding in the amount of $1100 to support high schools in conducting research on the impacts of climate change on plant phenology using PAR sensors. Students will investigate how climate change influences the timing of key plant phenological events, such as budburst, flowering, and leaf senescence, by monitoring PAR levels throughout the year. By comparing historical data with current observations, students will identify any shifts in the timing of these events and relate them to changes in temperature and precipitation patterns. This research will not only enhance students' understanding of climate change impacts on ecosystems but also develop their skills in environmental monitoring, data analysis, and scientific inquiry.
