Research Overview

In preparation of this research, over 100 students in the 11th grade collected data from their neighborhoods using ecological survey methods. They examined the natural and built environment which included collecting data on invasive ants for UCSD, searching for native spiders for UC Berkeley as well as checking COVID rates and air quality index. If you would like to find student work by topic, go to our Power + Place Distribution Data Map and select the “Research Category” layer.  If you would like to reference our open source data collected during the project, it is also linked here: Open Source HTH Urban Ecosystem Data Fall 2020
