BFA High School students Alex Ferguson and David Legris with Science Teacher Thomas Lane participated in four-day workshop at Saint Michael’s College this past summer.
The Leaves of Green workshop was an opportunity for high school teachers and students to explore how carbon is assimilated and partitioned by plants and how these processes affect agriculture, global climate change, and biofuel production.
The workshop incorporated class lecture, laboratory work, use of laboratory equipment and activities with other high school teams. The culminating event featured oral presentations on research conducted by each team.
Our students are continuing to develop leadership in this important area of scientific research.
