Representing Skyline Earth Team at NASA Ames Research Center
Representatives from Skyline Earth Team presented their research at the GLOBE Pacific Region Student Research Symposium on May 18th and May 19th 2018. Three 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 project presented at the symposium focused on the team’s work regarding pet waste and water quality in Dimond Park. It included data they collected, microbiological analysis from Aemtek Laboratories, and survey results collected from community members.
At the close of the event, several teams were recognized as outstanding youth researchers by participating NASA scientists. One of the teams recognized was Skyline Earth Team, who received medals of recognition and a trophy.
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!
