Olivet students to engage in new research
Lansing State Journal
OLIVET - Olivet students and science teachers are working with graduate students at the Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) to plant the seeds for the "BEST" BioEnergy SusTainability Schoolyard Research Network.
The network includes 300 research plots at 22 schools in 11 districts in six counties in southwest Michigan.
The research plots will mimic long-term, collaborative research at the KBS Long Term Ecological Research site and Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center. KBS faculty, staff, and graduate students are collaborating with Olivet teachers on experimental design, research protocols, and curriculum development for the research network.
Students in Mrs. Morton's chemistry biological science classes planted switchgrass and native prairie seeds on their research plots. Both are crops that researchers at KBS are studying for their potential value as bioenergy crops.
