High schoolers take hands-on biology course in SF

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- For those of you who have taken summer school, you know it can be slow and maybe not very appealing. But high schools in San Francisco have come up with a way to try to overcome boredom. For example in biology, students found some water, mud, and a little fresh air to make things a little more interesting.

Welcome to summer school in the park.

Students from different high schools in San Francisco are making up a biology class needed in order to eventually graduate. Most are sophomores and juniors.

They're here because, well, let's just say they didn't do so well in biology. So instead of relearning the material in the classroom, they get to spend five weeks learning from Mother Nature.
