TIFFIN, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A group of Tiffin middle school students have made a mark in their city through a nature trail. It's part of a school project four years in the making.

Clear Creek Amana middle school partnered with the city to design it and all that goes with it, like signs. We caught up with one of the STEM students involved who said her favorite part is the real-life experience.

"I thought it was really cool," said Madeline Fox. "I've never really done with this before so yeah just doing something like this is just a real experience."

Her teacher said she loved helping give her students the opportunity.

"Having the kids go to Des Moines with me and having them see that civil process," said Clear Creek Amana Middle School STEM Teacher Reagan Boeset. "The civic duty that we have and have them pay attention to what was going on and be a part of that."

Governor Kim Reynolds also came to the ribbon-cutting in support of STEM education.
