- A Northwoods teen will build a sugar shack for his high school's science department. Will Starke put up the framework for the shack Saturday.
Starke is a boy scout with troop 601 of Eagle River. He wants to build the shack for his Eagle Project.
Starke thinks the new sugar shack will help students process sap. The school teaches students about the process of making maple syrup.
"The project is to help the community and by helping the community, we're going through the school. It's important for kids to learn," says Starke. "We're going to bring in some of the fourth graders so they get to see some of the process."
Starke raised more than two thousand dollars to build the shack. He hopes the new building will give kids a realistic experience when it comes to making maple syrup.
He'll be back next weekend to do some finishing touches.
