Hands on learning jumps to a new level at one Asheville school. It's all thanks to a local grant.
8th graders at Asheville Middle School are experimenting with the carbon dioxide oxygen cycle This year the school wants it science classes to be more engaging for the students. The Cougars got a grant from the Asheville City Schools Foundation to purchase more equipment for its lab. Students say they enjoy the experiments and the hands on activities has helped them to better understand the delicate balance of life.
The grant money was also used for professional development. A group of teachers will also be able to attend the National Science Conference this year.
