Project Profile

Salmon Camp Research Team I

Description

OMSI’s Salmon Camp Research Team is a youth-based advanced technology and natural science career exposure and training program offered in a year-round, multi-year format. It annually serves 180 reservation, rural, and urban secondary school students with Native American community affiliations and very low representation in IT-related career fields. The students work with researchers on computer modeling of complex ecological, hydrological, and geological problems. They work directly with university, tribal, and agency scientists, researchers, and natural resource managers, using advanced technologies to facilitate salmon recovery efforts and mitigation of geologic hazards that may significantly impact salmon and human populations.
