SEEC (Supporting Environmental Education and Communities)

Borton Primary Magnet School students field questions after their scientific poster presentation on the native bee population at their school.The SEEC program aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics (STEAM) and social science among K-12 students in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD). The SEEC program prepares teachers and students to directly connect with physical and social scientists and humanities scholars by participating in cutting-edge, ongoing environmental research. Students partner with scientists to carry out research projects with the support of the SEEC program and CSGP interns. Throughout the school year, students contribute participatory research data to local and national projects while developing and contextualizing their own original research questions. Students present their findings during formal poster presentations and an art gallery exhibit each Spring.
