Civic Science: Inquiry to Action

We Make a World of Difference!

From measuring air quality in schools and cities to innovating solutions and bringing those ideas to policymakers—students go beyond data collection and analysis to make a world of difference in their communities.

Student Symposium

CELF’s Spring 2022 Civic Science program concluded with a Virtual Student Symposium! This interactive experience allowed students and teachers to present their semester-long work to each other, the CELF staff, and scholars and educators from other participating schools. Utilizing a place-based approach, students tackled various STEAM-related topics, including urban green spaces, air quality, and environmental justice!
