Soil 4 Youth
The future rests on the soil beneath our feet, but how many of us know about this precious natural resource? This website will allow you to explore the wonders of soil alongside your hosts Ms. Sandy and Clay.
The project is carried out through collaborative efforts of Canadian soil scientist who are part of the Virtual Soil Science Learning Resources group and it features examples of research projects that address a wide range of land-use impacts on soil as well as career paths of soil scientists. Even though the content is aimed at the Canadian high school students it could be also of an interest to students in other parts of the world since soil science principles are universal regardless of the geographical/climatic region.
Funding for this project was provided by the NSERC PromoSience Fund.
