ATM Students and Faculty Attend Youth Environmental Summit
ATM students and faculty recently presented two exhibits at the Youth Environmental Summit (YES!) in Barre, VT. The Summit is an annual conference for middle and high school students. YES! is an opportunity to learn about environmental issues and local involvement. The mission of YES! is to inspire, encourage, and prepare youth for a life of environmental responsibility, service and leadership by increasing awareness and knowledge of environmental issues and fostering leadership skills. There were over 180 participants this year! Dr. Jay talked to students about citizen science and the CoCoRaHS program. Three members of the Climate Change Communication group, Jake Fortin, Allison Fitzpatrick, and Francis Tarasiewicz, joined Dr. Hanrahan to educate students about carbon emissions.
