The American Indian Summer Institute in Earth System Science (AISIESS) is a free two-week residential summer program for Native high school students, entering grades 9-12 in fall 2015. Participants will conduct field research and camp out on the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians 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. The program culminates with a “mini‐conference” where students present research projects on tribal environmental issues. This program aims to address the critical need for Earth and Environmental Science professionals within tribal communities and is supported by the National Science Foundation.
