Federal Grant "Seed Money"--Sprouted, Growing and Blooming in the Kansas Sandhills: Interdisciplinary Studies--Their "Place in the Sun."
The Outdoor Research Project of Hutchinson Senior High School in Hutchinson, Kansas, was funded in 1977 to conduct a scientific baseline study of an outdoor education center and a state park. Gifted students used initial limnology tests, fish population studies, and groundcover analyses to produce management recommendations and a computer simulation program of pond water conditions. The program expanded the next year to an interdisciplinary program which resulted in implementation and further development of management recommendations, production of an educational documentary, tree growing from seed, and trail planning and marking. Students gain insight and experiences in their work with representatives from the business, scientific, and recreation community, and the community benefits when reil problems are solved. (CL)
