Ages 14-15 

Our Mappers build skills to prepare them not only for college, but their careers! By mapping your community, working with your team, and preparing for our symposium, you'll learn valuable skills in data science, research, and advocacy. All of this is really impressive on resumes, as well.

Each morning, you will meet up with your team to set your goals and assignments. Then, you'll visit your assigned locations and use your provided smartphone to collect data. Together with your team, you'll map community resources and help our neighborhoods! At the end of the summer, your team will present your findings at our annual scientific symposium. 

Check back in spring 2022 for summer 2022 registration
