MNCS Graduates featured in Star Tribune

MNCS Graduates featured in this article about the deformed frogs originally found by MNCS students back in 1995.

“The school (MNCS) and the frog project taught us how to think, how to work together to go after answers, take on big issues, speak and write and think outside the box. It really taught us about life, how to stay engaged even when there aren’t nice, tidy answers.” – Becky Pollack
