Driving north into the Golden West community of Lower Brule, one of the first buildings you see is Lower Brule High School. When you walk out the front door of the school, the picturesque Big Bend of the Missouri River meets your gaze. However, if you glance to the left, you will see the Lower Brule Day School and Education Administration Office. Tucked in the basement of this building, in a modest space shared with computer storage, sits a non-profit called Lower Brule Research (LBR). The brainchild of a science teacher, this non-profit is in its third year of teaching the youth of Lower Brule to ask questions and use science to help their community.
