Introduction to research for High Schools

Our group together with other research groups at CEBAS has iniated an educational research project with several High Schools of the Region of Murcia.

Three students 16 years-old will develop a research project within our group during 8 months, they will study the changes in soil properties and their capacity for carbon sequestration under different conservation practices applied in one of our experimental farms in dryland agricultural systems of the Region of Murcia. We will work together from the field to the laboratory and they will present their results in a small Congress that will celebrate in CEBAS at the end of May 2014. This project represents a new way to introduce science in educational programs and an interesting opportunity to bring closer the value of local agro-ecosystems to younger generations.
