GRAHAM, N.C. -- Wildlife is all around us and that is something Piedmont students in one STEM education program know very well.
Some eighth graders at Graham Middle School are keeping a close watch on animals that wander near their campus around the clock.
Their efforts are part of the worldwide e-Mammal project.
Students help by gathering the photos, identifying the mammals and then submitting the data to scientists who will further evaluate it.
Their teacher Dayson Pasion, is part of the Kenan Fellows program that helped design the student part of the study.
The young researchers developed a mammal ID guide they use, but they also double-check every identification made.
