CELF's Citizen Science '19 spring semester program is in progress!
We are working with eight New York City schools this semester.
Students are busy testing the air quality in their respective neighborhoods and gathering their data. They will then learn to analyze, visualize, and share what they find. Finally, students will develop a pollution prevention plan in light of their analysis. Some classes will go one step further and turn their plans into real-world action. We are so excited to see what emerges from their hard work!
We will be celebrating our citizen scientists and their educators at a Student Symposium we are hosting at CUNY School of Law on June 8, 2019. If you are interested in attending or want to learn more about the program, please get in touch: [email protected]
This "Team Science" program provides a unique opportunity for middle school teachers and students to work with field expert partners from:
- Mount Sinai Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit
- CUNY School of Law Center for Urban Environmental Reform
- NY Hall of Science
- NYC Department of Health
