Jefferson High School Science Department

Prairie Project

    The Jefferson PTA has generously given the science department a grant to build an outdoor classroom next to the new science wing.  Combining this grant with another grant to create a prairie eco-system in the same area we will be able to offer the students a unique learning environment.  The science department already has an outdoor classroom with a pond.  See the Pond Project.

    Plans are made and we hope to begin construction in the summer of 2006.

Before:

We've added the oak tree for our prairie savanna.  
Thanks to Mr. Strait for his donation and to Dwight Hughes nursery for putting in the tree.

 

This is the new platform for telescopes
during night viewing or launching bottle rockets for Physics
or testing solar collectors for
Principles of Technology.

Our very sincere thanks and appreciation to Olson Brothers Construction for their help and to Mr. Strait for his donation!
