Students are involved in a long-range project where they collaborate with graduate students and scientists to study and monitor mercury levels within MBRNP. Students also participate in a field experience, search for dragonfly larvae and send samples to a Dartmouth lab for analysis. Last Wednesday evening's event is the culmination of their work. The audience listened to a keynote presentation by Steve Faccio of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies by and then circulate through the poster presentations from all the student groups. Big kudos to Jen Stainton and of course to all our student scientists! You can learn more about the project and event here. Click on the image to view the entire galley.
9th Grade environmental science students presented their results from the Twin States Mercury Project. The project is now in its seventh year and is a collaboration between WUHS, Stevens High School (Claremont, NH), Dartmouth College, MBR National Historic Park and several more organizations.
