Dayton STEM Students Partner With Newport Aquarium

This school year, students at the Dayton Regional STEM School teamed up with the Newport Aquarium's Wave Foundation to create short documentaries and a website featuring four different species who make their home at the aquarium. To get details about the program and its impact, We spoke with STEM senior Tess Greene—the executive producer of the Living Lens Project.

As Tess mentioned, in their partnership with the Newport Aquarium, the Dayton Regional STEM School's Living Lens project allows for students in different grades levels to work collaboratively.  We spoke to a few of those students involved about their participation, what portion of the project they were working on, and what they were getting out of the project. Their responses are contained in the interviews below.
