NYU Students and Disabled Individuals visit Mahopac Genesis Project
Mahopac High School students got an education outside the classroom last week in an effort to know more about water quality testing procedures. On April 22, a group of MHS students gathered outside the high school to test the quality of the water in the stream that runs alongside the school. Working with Michael Hellmann, a specialist who promotes the American with Disabilities Act, the students performed the procedures from a handicapped-accessible station that overlooks the stream. Hellman has been in a wheelchair for 30 years after suffering a stroke at the age of 23. “I hope to see more people enjoy this wonderful facility,” Hellman said. “I love the inclusivity here. It’s what makes this a good project and has potential to include people with disabilities.” Students also planted trees around the stream to protect the body of water from erosion.
Later that week, on April 25 at the Croton Reservoir, MHS students took what they learned earlier in the week and taught the water quality testing procedures to Environmental Studies majors at NYU. “The MHS students are really on top of these experiments,” NYU senior Mailinda Moore said. “I think it’s really cool that they have this kind of experience at such a young age.” To see the students' data, go to globe.gov.
