Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Are my streams healthy?

Streams are important habitats for insects, invertebrates, and fish. In this project, you can look at the physical, biological, and/or chemical characteristics of local streams to see if they are healthy or polluted.

Not all soils are created equally

Some soils are rich in nutrients, some allow water to be retained, and some have thriving invertebrate communities. Different features (such as bedrock, tree cover, and more) can influence these soil characteristics. In this project, you can compare soils found in different locations to determine how various landscape features influence soil biogeochemistry.
