This project is open to all African-American students in grades 9-12.
The ICE-T (Integrating Computational & Experimental Technologies) project will teach students the computer coding language and experimental techniques required to examine the physiology, biochemistry and voltage potential of microbial fuel cells (MFC) made from river sediment.
Students will earn a stipend of $487.50 at the end of each phase, for a total of $975.00. Students must complete all sessions to receive the full stipend. This project will take place every Thursday from 4:00pm-6:00 pm at The Citizen Science Lab starting on February 2nd 2017. Accepted students will be mailed a welcome packet with the complete schedule and other information prior to the start of the first session.
The Citizen Science Lab is fully equipped with the tools and equipment needed to facilitate fun, engaging and safe experiments. All students are provided with gloves, safety goggles and lab coats to be used during their activities. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes and clothing that can withstand small messes. While food and drink is not permitted inside the lab, participants are welcome to pack snacks and eat them in the lobby.
