The Future Leader Academy fosters student leadership by engaging students in entrepreneurship and research. The research projects will be devoted to three streams that are aligned with sustainable development and environmental stewardship. The student outcome expectations are that by combining real life engagement and research, students will increase their awareness and creativity to come up with innovative solutions.
L.E.A.F. students got to experience how they could directly affect climate change by observing and making connections about what’s needed to support the health of different ecosystems on the Fredon farm. After testing soil and water samples from the horse paddocks and ponds on the Fredon farm, they each pursued a deeper avenue of discovery to better understand their specific interest in farm management. This illuminated for them how they could personally improve life on our farm and life on the planet!
