During the 1997/98 school year, a sixth grade class at Farnsworth Elementary in St. Paul got involved in a distance learning project called the Jason Project, a project designed to have students experience real science and to interact with other students, teachers and scientific experts also doing real science. One of the components of the project was to have students do a study of a local body of water. Since they were so close to Lake Phalen, they chose Lake Phalen. Their project was called the “Lake Phalen Stewards Project - A Watershed Awareness Project”.
