Students from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) visited Henninger High School April 2nd and 3rd as part of a program to encourage high school students, particularly underrepresented students, to pursue careers in science and technology.

The ESF students participate in the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP), a national award-winning effort to increase the number of historically underrepresented, economically disadvantaged college students who complete educational programs in these fields.

ESF students and a couple of staff members collected water samples from area streams and brought them to Henninger High School. They split the classes into small groups and give each a tub of water containing aquatic insects. The students analyzed the type and number of insects found in each sample. They learned how to use the insect life to assess stream health.

The college students worked with high school students in grades nine, 11 and 12.
