With support from the California Space Grant, UC Davis’ AggieMentors program has achieved much success. AggieMentors is a part of the EnvironMentors program aimed at providing opportunities for underrepresented high school students in the Environmental Sciences and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. Through AggieMentors, students are paired with individual graduate students and collaborate to develop student projects.
This year, UC Davis’ AggieMentors was able retain 100% of participating high school students who finished the program. And at the EnvironMentors fair in Washington, DC, AggieMentors student Angelica Cervantes was the recognized winner at this year’s national competition with her project titled “The Effectiveness of Different Antibacterials on Killing Bacteria”.
