  • Carroll students participate in environmental training

    The environment has been front and center in recent weeks. Water shortages occurring in multiple states are making headline news. States not normally affected by snow are reporting record snowfall totals. Mother Nature is making her presence known.

    In 1999, Kentucky introduced a problem-solving event, the Envirothon Program, to high school students. With the support of natural resource professionals, students are trained in the ways that real life environmental problems are solved. The Envirothon is an example of the practical use of STEM initiatives.
