EnvironMentors at Alabama State University

Plan

ASU EnvironMentors is designed to reach out to under represented high school students, and prepare them for potential environmental careers. This is achieved through environmental research with mentors, workshops, and participation in symposia where their work is presented and shared with the ASU community and the public. With funding from this grant, participating students will collect samples from multiple locations along the Alabama River and analyze them. They will also map the local watershed and gain an understanding of the importance of water quality. The students will be mentored by a team of professors and graduate students.
