Waterford, CT – Dual Language & Arts Magnet Middle School (DL&AMMS) is the recipient of a grant awarded by the Dominion Foundation to support the science concepts addressed in Connecticut Science Standards.
The generous funds will support 6th grade students as they embark on an exploration of their local watershed and its impact on Long Island Sound by participating in hands-on, inquiry-based activities. These activities will include research cruises aboard the R/V Enviro-Lab to collect time-series data on chemical, physical, geological and biological oceanographic characteristics of LIS with specific focus parameters that can be linked to human activity.
DL&AMMS is located in Waterford and serves students in grades 6 – 8. LEARN, a Regional Educational Service Center (RESC), is the fiscal agent for DLAMMS. LEARN serves 25 school districts in southeastern/shoreline Connecticut. Established in 1967 by local districts, LEARN is one of the six RESCs in the state. The purpose of each RESC is to enhance the quality of education and provide solutions to identified needs through a wide range of programs and services.
