Students, teachers, rangers, and research scientists, working together in a Student-Teacher-Scientist-Partnership, can gather exciting and beneficial data at MHS - more than scientists and students can gather alone. Middle level students can develop, ask, and answer their own questions about MHS. Some of the questions they ask may be ones scientists do not yet have answers for and others may help to support and reinforce current hypotheses and theories. Given the tools, background, and structure, students are capable of participating in cutting-edge science research on many levels.
