A group of 15 students and two staff members from the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts recently completed a six-day Colorado trip as a part of Special Projects Week.

Students on the trip included Nicholas Adams, a sophomore from Zachary; and juniors Orlando Edwards and Myles Fabre, both of Baton Rouge.

The trip was a renewable energy and conservation tour and included visits to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden and the Colorado School of Mines.

The students and staff also observed wildlife and talk about conservation during a ranger-guided snowshoe hike through Rocky Mountain National Park and spoke with notable scientists at the Denver Museum of Natural Science. They also made time for a visit to the popular ski resort city of Breckenridge.
