Thank you for visiting the 2019 E.S.S.R.E. webpage! This summer, 20 interns participated in E.S.S.R.E.'s three week progam to perform a biota survey, or an environmental "snapshot” of the Roland Park Country School Backwoods. The interns then based their individual group projects on statistical anomalies found in the biota survey data to uncover the possible truth behind discrepancies in various microbe populations and chemical levels found throughout the E.S.S.R.E. sites. These girls represented various schools throughout the Baltimore area, including Friends School of Baltimore, Notre Dame Preparatory School, Baltimore School for the Arts, and Roland Park Country School, to make up a very successful 2019 program! Please explore this webpage to find the interns’ research papers and 2019 data.
If you have comments or questions, please feel free to contact the former project director by e-mail at STEMTeacherEmeritus.rpcs@gmail.com.  Contact current project director, Cheryl Carmona at carmonac@rpcs.org
