A new environmental science lab was recently launched by Lethbridge College and Livingstone Range School Division.
The lab will be located at the PEAKS Collegiate Campus in Coleman, Alberta.
Staff with LRSD told us that the lab will be used by Grade 7 to 12 students from all across the division in a variety of ecological spaces perfect for environmental science programming.
“It’s equipped with state of the art, I would say, equipment to be able to do some of the work needed for the dual credit program that we’ve done with Lethbridge College. So it’s a 27 foot trailer and it’s equipped with microscopes, televisions, all the pieces you’d need to do sampling to do that sort of work, to be able to do the work for ecology, botany and those sorts of things,” says Chad Kuzyk, the Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Innovation for the region.
The lab took 10 months to build and was made possible by a $100,000 grant from the Alberta Education Dual Credit Enhancement Fund.
