Courtesy KARE-11 (20-Feb-2014) – Chippewa Middle School students impact major development project
Using this unique learning opportunity situated right in our backyard, Ramsey County is working with the Mounds View School District to develop Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) curriculum on topics throughout the demolition, cleanup, and redevelopment processes at Rice Creek Commons.
Seventh-grade students at Chippewa Middle School in Mounds View learn firsthand how experts clean and clear the site, and try their hands at community development planning. High school students are testing water onsite to determine how development affects a wetland.
As the project progresses, the TCAAP Redevelopment Partnership will continue to work with area schools to provide educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
