2018 IGNITE RESEARCH AT UC BEREKELY
IGNITE is an international interdisciplinary program created in 2016 with the vision of understanding and tackling real-world issues. Collegiate underclassmen and advanced high-school students will gain a deeper appreciation for topics of personal interest, while cultivating a personal toolkit of skills, through the first-hand experience, that will prepare them for higher education. During the program, students will participate in lectures and activities throughout the academic year which includes university professors and researchers providing hands-on guidance and mentoring.
2018 UCB PROJECT AIR
The students continued to explore the research and practice of Environmental Science and Public Health by focusing on Richmond, California. Richmond is a diverse community on the north eastern portion of the San Francisco Bay Area. Richmond is a place with many public health challenges and opportunities for innovation and improvement. The students examined the air quality issues, neighborhood equality, and health challenges to deepen their understanding of how pubic health research and practice is in the real-world. They looked at air quality from the traditional to the innovative methods of measurement and evaluated neighborhoods for positive and negative community aspects. The students had the opportunity to try their hand at collecting field data for health, social and environmental information. The goal of the 2018 program was to help the students pose a hypothesis and then write a scientific paper to answer it.
