Kent State receives $2.7 million NSF training grant for environmental aquatic resource sensing
Date:11/5/2009

a highly competitive award, endorsing the quality of our students and our sciences," said James Blank, chair of Kent State's Biological Sciences department. "This is a highly coveted award that will help transform graduate programs."

Currently, three doctoral students from Kent State and three doctoral students from Miami University are participating in the EARS project. The students recently conducted a workshop at Lacawac Sanctuary in Pennsylvania where they tested sensors and collected data. They also will design an education outreach project that they will implement together, using what they are learning to educate students in local schools.

"We hope to stimulate interest in environmental science from school kids and the general public," Leff said.

"It is a real honor to join the ranks of other IGERT recipients and particularly to focus our efforts on issues related to our fresh water resources," said Dr. Timothy Moerland, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State. "Through this program, Ph.D. candidates will build upon their knowledge of environmental science by designing sensors and sensor networks that can be used to analyze and manage data more effectively. These sensors will help detect potential pathogens and hazards in our water like never before. The EARS-IGERT research conducted at Kent State University and with our partners at Miami University will feed directly into the goals and objectives of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which was also recently signed into law by the federal government."
