The TREES program is a unique hands-on research experience for high school students that introduce them to laboratory science. About eight students are recruited each year from local high schools for the program. They are taught by graduate student mentors, alumni high school student mentors and faculty members who guide the students one-on-one or in the small group. The central part of the program is a independent research project. Through their projects, scholars learn to take a scientific approach towards an environmental problem, conducting in-depth library research, training in scientific methodology, carrying out hands-on bench science and where possible, field work. Some projects are carried out as team projects involving multiple students. At the end of the program, students write a research report and present their projects to invited guests in a public presentation. Many students have won awards for their projects at the local and national level
