VT EPSCoR: Research on Adaptation to Climate Change

View this Opportunity's Website 

Academic Level:
High School Students
K-12 Educators

Join the Basin Resilience to Extreme Events (BREE) program, a research community that engages and challenges youth in STEM fields.

BREE sponsors student and teacher teams(usually one teacher and two students) from Vermont and partner states. We connect you with a mentor in your area of interest to guide your research project. Some teams work outside of the classroom to collect stream water quality data, whereas others choose to work with existing datasets or on a project in their community.

Research Topics Include:

Lake and stream ecology, environmental policy and management, water quality indicators, land use management, and climate change indicators.


Attend a training week on campus, in June. Learn how a research team functions and experience the scientific process first-hand Investigate a research question of your own design during the school year Attend the annual spring research symposium and present your research

Teachers receive a $1000 stipend, equipment needed to complete their project, and $1000 of equipment funds for their school!

Both natural science and social studies teachers are encouraged to participate.
