Lam Research Foundation 2016-17

 Environmental Interns

Lam Research Foundation has funded us for 2016-2017 to  organize and engage high school students to do more for the environment in the Fremont, Union City, Newark area.   Students  will not only learn the science behind the environment but will go learn about places that they can help restore  such as Masonic Home Reforestation Project,  Mission Creek,  Irvington Creek, California Nursery Historical Park, and Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon.



Lam Research Foundation has funded us to continue our Environment Internships sponsored by the Math Science Nucleus.  This year we will continue our chemical and microorganism of fresh water aquatic systems, but we are adding cultural landscape (how environment and humans evolve).  Dr. Karen Anderson, Archeologist will be added to as one of our mentors.  Dr. Joyce Blueford, Geologist will continue as mentor. 

About 10 students will be selected.  To qualify they need to have taken one year of science in high school and need to be a sophomore or higher.  They would have to attend two 3 day training session (July 12,13,14) at Tule Ponds at Tyson Lagoon  and (July 26,27,28) at California Nursery Historical Park.  Both sessions are from 9:30 am - 3:30pm.

After training students are eligible to continue with research projects funded by Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District and Math Science Nucleus.  Throughout the year students work on different projects from chemical testing, recording species abundance, working with compost, and many other environmental projects.
