Skinner Scholars go to Keystone Science School

Riding is style this year, Skinner 6th graders embarked on yet another annual visit to Keystone Science School.  The trip was mentally and physically draining but in a positive way!

Rarely do teachers and students receive an opportunity to leave the walls of the school behind and bond with one another while engaging in scientific field work.  This year’s experience brought us together to investigate the effects of the mountain pine beetle on forest ecology.  Together we delved deep into the issue to understand the seriousness of the challenges faced by stakeholders and members of the ecosystem.

Returning to Skinner we bring an understanding of everyone’s perspectives, some ideas about logical steps for local government and a stronger sense of community among our Skinner Scholars.

– Mr. Martin, 6th grade Science teacher
