CW3E Graduate Student Serves as GELS Instructor

July 18, 2018

This summer, CW3E graduate student Kara Voss served as a science instructor for the Global Environmental Leadership & Sustainability (GELS) Scripps/Washington D.C. program. In this two-week program, high achieving high school students come to SIO to learn the basics of oceanographic and atmospheric data collection and interpretation, in addition to leadership skills. Then, they travel to Washington D.C. along with the instructors to meet with the Congressional Representatives of their home districts and advocate for science-based environmental policies of the student’s choice.
