The American Indian Summer Institute in Earth System Science (AISIESS)
July 10-23, 2016
The American Indian Summer Institute in Earth System Science (AISIESS) is a free two-week residential summer program for Native high school students currently in grades 8-11. Participants will conduct field research and camp out on the La Jolla Indian Reservation, then travel back to the beautiful UC Irvine campus to experience dorm life while interacting with professors, college students and invited American Indian community members to create poster presentations relating to tribal environmental issues. This program aims to address the critical need for Earth and Environmental Science professionals within tribal communities.
