Newswatch 16 visited the East Lycoming School District last week for a Labor Day Weekend story about an outdoor science classroom built as part of Penn College’s Youth Leadership Program. Hughesville High School students Patrick R. Hiller, Benjamin C. Nesselrodt and Megan E. Shaner – all members of the Class of 2015 – were awarded $800 for their first-place project to build the Little Spartan Science Center at Ashkar Elementary School. WNEP multimedia journalist Kristina Papa’s piece briefly highlights the alfresco instructional area, which will include a weather station, birdwatching, and interesting flowers and shrubs. As part of their award-winning effort, the students installed the seating and built the path that leads to the platform.
