AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW)--The students at Davidson Fine Arts High School are proving they aren't just in touch with their creative sides.

Students at the school have been working on environmental projects that range from raising trout to developing a system that generates hydroelectricity.

Michaela Rowland has been working on a project that will introduce a trout population to the Augusta Canal since May.

She says it's been interesting watching the project, and the fish, grow.

"It's really nice to know that you're starting with like 6,000 baby fish and now they're growing," Rowland said.

Students at the school say it can be difficult juggling their fine arts along with their academic projects, but they say they're happy right where they are.

"It's pretty crazy. There's a lot going on between the academic rigor and the fine arts expectation that we have here. But for me, it's fun," one student said.
