During the AISESS program, students spend one week camping on the La Jolla Band of Luise?o Indians reservation near San Diego, CA and one week on the University of California, Irvine campus. During both weeks, students learn about Earth System Science through interactive discussions and hands-on laboratory and field exercises. Each week also incorporates Native studies courses, visits from native STEM professionals, evening talking circles, field trips, college preparation activities, social events, and cultural activities. The program culminates with a ini-conference wherein students present research projects on a geoscience issue relevant to their own tribal communities.

The AISIESS program aims to address the critical need for Earth and Environmental Science professionals within tribal communities and is supported by an NSF Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) grant to the PI, Dr. Kathleen Johnson.
