Science students tour Experimental Lakes

DHS students observe and experiment at the Experimental Lakes Area

On Wednesday, May 26, Dryden High School students visited the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) to observe real and authentic ecological science.

The group consisted of Mr. Mitchell’s grade 12 Biology class, Mr. Darling’s grade 11 Environmental Science class, and Mrs. Jones’ Grade 12 science class.

The ELA is a unique world class research station where whole-lake ecosystem experiments can be conducted.  It is located 80 km west of Dryden.

Students were given demonstrations at 5 different stations, learning about the research and analysis that is conducted at the ELA.  The stations included: 

  • Radio-tracking devices placed in Lake Trout to study the behavior and movement of the fish,
  • A Whole-lake study on the effects of aquaculture cages on the resident fish populations,
  • Fish netting and recording techniques,
  • The chemistry lab for the analysis of water properties,
  • and the invertebrates lab for the capture and study of aquatic invertebrates.

All students who participated had their eyes opened to career and education paths in the ecological sciences.

The DHS Science department commits itself to authentic, hands-on learning activities such as the ELA field trip.
