Middle School Students Learn the Importance of Coastal Protection

St. Angela middle school students verified how crucial Louisiana’s coastal wetlands are to protecting our urban communities from storm surge, using a hands-on wet model.  In dynamic presentations, local, professional environmental engineers inspired engineering career options, as they demonstrated how their work is a commitment to solving problems unique to our area, as well as improving the quality of life in our community with projects like the Bucktown Boardwalk in our very own neighborhood.  Finally, students got to show what they know in a game of Coastal Jeopardy, with challenging categories such as “Louisiana’s Coastal History”, “Coastal Protection”, and “Wetland Animals”.  St. Angela middle school students now know all about the Roseate Spoonbill, also known as the Cajun Flamingo!
