OMS science students get first-hand experience around Lake Ontario

Seventh and eighth graders from Oswego Middle School’s accelerated science program recently had the opportunity to experience first-hand the rigors and benefits of exploratory field work in a partnership with SUNY Oswego.
 
In a full-day field trip, students were able to interact with professors and undergraduates at the Rice Creek Field Station as well as tour the college’s chemistry department labs.
 
The culminating event of the adventure was a clean-up project of the shores of Lake Ontario bordering campus, where students collected and catalogued pollution.
 
“We’re in a really unique situation to live on a great lake and we want our students to be able to get out and be knowledgeable about the environment,” said teacher Elisa Davis.
 
The college is currently in the midst of a Great Lakes Workshop examining the effects of plastics in the Great Lakes and Davis said it was important for students to have access to real-life applications for their areas of study.
 
“We want our students to participate and make them aware of the problems in our community, like pollution affecting our drinking water, get them engaged and show some real world experiences and how it could affect their future careers,” Davis said.
