National Science Foundation CAREER grant winner, Justin Minder.

The camp is being funded through a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER grant awarded to Justin Minder, assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences.

The grant was secured to fund Minder’s research on how the loss of snow cover in the Rocky Mountains (and other mountains) due to global climate change impacts weather and climate in and near the mountains. The five-year grant totals $570,640. The day camp is one educational aspect of the grant. The camp is funded at least through summer 2018.
