Fishing For Population Data

VERMILLION MIDDLE SCHOOL • South Dakota

Project Information

Vermillion Middle School’s project examines the flying fish invasion of Asian Carp into the Missouri National Recreational River and its invasive environmental threat to the historically and environmentally significant water way. Students will become informed about the local environmental issue through expert education, innovative experiences, and data analysis. Then, they will develop a technological platform for educating our community regarding the threat, prevention, and control of the invasive species in the Missouri River waterway. Finally, students will advocate for Missouri River protection from Asian Carp by presenting the educational information and their proposed solution to local governmental/interest groups.
