Abigail Yates, Karlee O’Dell, and Payton Beard are 6th graders at Midland Trail High School and are part of the Empowerment Collaborative Initiative. They recently participated in an ongoing problem-based learning scavenger hunt experience titled “North of the New.” They had many learning experiences by traveling to local areas such as Ansted, Hawks Nest State Park, Babcock State Park, New River Gorge National Park, and other locations. Students learned content standards through real-life application of skills such as data analysis of road traffic, public speaking, historical research, and more!
