ESSRE 2019


Environmental Science Summer Research Experience for Young Women

Thank you for visiting the 2019 E.S.S.R.E. page! This summer, 20 interns participated in E.S.S.R.E.’s three week program to perform a biota survey, also known as an environmental “snapshot” of the Roland Park Country School Backwoods. The interns based their individual group projects on statistical anomalies found in the biota survey data to uncover the possible truth behind discrepancies in various microbe populations and chemical levels found throughout the E.S.S.R.E. sites. These girls represented various schools throughout the Baltimore area, including Baltimore School of the Arts, Friends School, Notre Dame Preparatory School, and Roland Park Country School, to make up a very successful 2019 program. Please explore this page to find the interns’ research papers and 2019 data.

If you have comments or questions, please feel free to contact the project director, Cheryl Carmona, by e-mail at
