GROVETOWN, Ga. (WRDW) -- Students at Stallings Island Middle School are giving back. And they're using the skills they've learned in class to do it.
The students are putting together elevated dog beds using science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles they've learned this year.
"We're working with Richmond County Animal Services. The director there is working with us so we can meet up on a Saturday morning and deliver the dog beds ourselves," said Lindsay Webb, the program's organizer.
Webb is a technology and engineering teacher at Stallings Island.
She says she came up with the idea to educate her students in a charitable way after seeing work done by the Dog Networking Agency.
"We just wanted people to know that anyone can make a difference. Just the smallest thing by volunteering your time," Webb said.
The students are currently trying to assemble more beds to give away by asking local businesses to donate materials.
