Peterson Middle School, Osborne Nature Center

Peterson Middle School has a two-acre on-site Nature Center, which serves as a rich educational resource for all students in its district.  The Nature Center was developed by two science teachers to enhance science education during a period of educational budget cuts.  The Nature Center has been influential in teaching students about nature and environmental science through field trips and a highly interactive website.  Over the past five years, SCU engineering students have worked on over 10 projects that have enhanced the educational resources available on the Nature Center website.
