Welcome to the 2015 ESSRE homepage! For three weeks this summer 15 young women from 5 different high schools in the Baltimore area including Roland Park Country School, Notre Dame Prep, Friends School, Bais Yaakov, and Randallstown Highschool interned at Roland Park Country School with the Environmental Science Summer Research Experience. These interns were employed to perform a biota survey, or an environmental “snapshot”, of the four microclimates found in the RPCS backwoods. After conducting the survey, which includes a plethora of chemical and physical tests on the microclimates, the interns divided into research groups. These groups designed and conducted an experiment based off of discrepancies in the data collected. This webpage will provide links to each group's discoveries.
