Oliver Middle is a participant in this empowering project.

A lot of STEM/STEAM.

Another experience to utilize the latest technology and the concept of camera trapping - the purpose being to learn about the wildlife found in this location.

  • Data gathering, What data do we need to gather at each camera location? GPS units and data forms.

  • eMammal overview

  • Creating a GIS based map. Will this help the STEAM Team? Yes
