  • HCMS students test the waters

    Henry County Middle School eighth graders recently worked from the banks of Towne Creek in New Castle to test the water and learn about pollution and conservation.
    The Henry County Conservation District awarded the school’s science department a grant so the students can conduct hands-on investigations in water quality, according to educator Larisa McKinney. Science teachers also teamed up with the University of Kentucky’s agriculture department in the Project Based Learning Watershed Initiative to enhance the curriculum.
