Armed with the confidence of graduate students, 10 Allendale Middle School students presented their research at Michigan State University's Science Night, hosted at the Grand Rapids Public Museum, April 18. The students collected water samples and aquatic macroinvertebrates to assess the overall health of the Sevey Drain, a stream that runs through the middle and elementary school campuses. The students successfully defended their research in the company of other research scientists including PhD students, post-doctorates, and professors from universities including Loyola University, Michigan State University, and Grand Valley State University.
As the need for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) skills continues to be in high demand, more employers are collaborating with schools to encourage students to seek careers in STEM-related fields.
The Allendale Middle School Science Olympiad team has qualified for the State Science Olympiad Tournament, April 29 at Michigan State University.
