A University of Saskatchewan toxicologist is reaching out to grade eight students in Saskatoon.

Lalita Bharadwaj is planning another round of Citizen Science: Go Green Youth. The program brings graduate students together with young people to investigate local issues. The first group of students to take part last winter focused on regional water systems.

Bharadwaj isn’t sure what the focus will be on this year. But she said that good things happen when graduate students and kids work together.

"It's about engaging students, regardless of the topic, and it really is an aim to engage and inspire all students at all levels of education."     

Bharadwaj is in the planning and recruiting stage for this school year’s round of Citizen Science: Go Green Youth. Graduate students and kids will begin working together on projects in the New Year.
