The ESF Science CorpsWith funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) is embarking on a project to incorporate College research in environmental science, engineering and technology, planning and design, and policy and management into high school science teaching and learning.
Enhancing Scientific Literacy Through Environmental Science builds upon the ESF in the High School program, a collaboration between ESF and partnering urban, rural, and suburban school districts. ESF in the High School enables qualified high school students to earn college credit while still in high school and to prepare for a successful transition to college.
The ESF Science Corps is a key aspect of Enhancing Scientific Literacy Through Environmental Science project. Comprised of undergraduate, masters, and PhD students who receive NSF Fellowships, the ESF Science Corps links ESF research to the classroom, lab, and field experiences of ESF in the High School students and teachers by allowing Science Corps members to serve as resources to teachers.
