Teen Research and Education in Environmental Science (TREES)
The industrial revolution brought about many changes ranging from industrial scale farming to automobiles, computers, and cell phones, to revolutionary medicines. But these changes have taken a heavy toll on the planet, leading to the depletion of natural resources, the accumulation of toxic compounds, and antibiotic-resistant infectious diseases. The next generation will have to deal with novel energy sources and unexpected toxic exposures. Each summer, program participants will learn about some of these problems, how they can be measured, and most importantly, get a glimpse of how we can fix them.
