Here you will find a showcase of students’ successes in the EBAYS program.
Another measure of the efficacy of the EBAYS program is the output of its participants. Over the past several years, EBAYS students have been involved in several research projects that have generated valuable information related to currently relevant environmental issues.
- Youth research led to the identification of 70 homes in Washington, D.C. area where drinking water lead concentrations exceeded the US EPA mandated 15 ppb action level.
- EBAYS student scientists have identified areas of poor air and water quality in and around Oakland, California.
- Teen participants in EBAYS have presented over twenty-five posters at professional scientific conferences (including AGU’s BrightSTARS program) and published abstracts that describe their work.
