Skyline Earth Team Wins NASA Award: Sharing Research Findings at Ames Research Center
Representatives from Antioch Earth Team presented their research at the GLOBE Pacific Region Student Research Symposium on May 18th and May 19th 2018. Two young leaders attended the conference of over 100 young scientists and mentors at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. The two day symposium included a tour of the world’s largest wind tunnel, presentations by NASA researchers and the director of the facility, peer reviews of research projects, and feedback on posters from NASA researchers.
The interns in attendance shared the group’s poster, which focused on their water testing and restoration efforts at the Upper Sand Creek Basin, with peers and professional researchers throughout the conference. The poster that the team prepared included data from various days of water testing as well as observations about oak growth in the basin and recommendations for successful community engagement and education moving forward.
Many thanks to the GLOBE Program and NASA for hosting such an inspiring group of youth environmental leaders at this year’s Pacific Region Student Research Symposium!
