*The Bay Area Inspire Awards program was started in 2014 by a group of Bay Area residents interested in building a better community for all residents. This year the program is supporting six 18-30 year olds in Alameda, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties with innovative ideas for improving social equity.
Welcome to La Mera Ciencia, the official blog of Menlo-Atherton Ecology Research Outdoors (MERO). Founded in 2017, MERO is a free, after-school environmental education program for high school English Language Learners that gets students outside doing ecology. Mero (or mera for feminine words like ciencia) is Spanish for "legit" or "the real thing", which is exactly the kind of science we do in the MERO program!
