ESF Hosts Environmental Summit for High School Students
Students to present year-long research projects
Students from a dozen different schools across Central New York will be on the campus of the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) June 2 for the 2011 ESF Environmental Summit.
The students are all enrolled in the College's ESF in the High School global environment course, which allows students to experience college-level coursework while still in high school. During the Environmental Summit, students will present their semester-long research projects to their peers, high school and college science faculty, graduate and undergraduate students.
The projects enable the students to engage not only in the knowledge but the process of science.
The Environmental Summit is the culminating event of the ESF in the High School program, said Dr. Richard E. Beal, associate director for educational outreach at ESF. Students take college courses in their own high school and part of the program includes a yearlong research project with a presentation at the summit.
The research carried out by the students is supported by the ESF Science Corps, which consists of ESF graduate students who visit schools to bring in cutting-edge ESF research and to help students conduct their own research projects.
