Manzo Elementary School Makes an Impact in Science

Manzo Elementary School, in part with their scaled-down experiment of Biosphere 2's LEO project, planted a variety of seeds on their miniature hillslopes. The seeds were picked out by Manzo school counselor Moses Thompson, with the idea of choosing plants that are regionally important. The data collected by the Manzo students will be used for research at Biosphere 2.

Abreeza Zegeer, the greenhouse manager for the University of Arizona, designed and built the miniature Landscape Evolution Observatory models in her greenhouses south of campus. Zegeer took meticulous measurements to help ensure that once the miniature LEOs were in place, data collected by the Manzo students would be as accurate as possible. - PHOTO BY JOHN DE DIOS

Zegeer was instrumental in building the little LEOs and making sure they replicated and reflected the science done with the original models for the replicas. - PHOTO BY JOHN DE DIOS

Moses Thompson gets down into the dirt with the students as they prepared the stands for the miniature LEO models. Thompson has been the counselor at Manzo Elementary School for the last seven years and has made a tremendous impact with the science and math curriculum. Under his guidance, the school has since built a state-of-the-art greenhouse, where the little LEOs are housed, that also contain a thriving aquaponics system for growing tilapia. - PHOTO BY JOHN DE DIOS
