Adopt A Maple

The students of the Island City Research Academy (ICRA) worked with Anderson's Maple Syrup to help connect people around the globe with the wonders of maple trees and the process of making maple syrup.  Students learned about the scientific process of making maple syrup and applied GPS and computer technologies to connect people that adopt one of Anderson's trees to data and photos for their tree.
