EUGENE, Ore. -- Students in a U.S. and world history class at Roosevelt Middle School presented the findings from their recent gun control project Tuesday.

Lawmakers, school board members, education leaders and business owners attended the presentation.

The students studied several challenging policy issues throughout the term, including gun control, mental health and climate change.

“After the events on Feb. 14 in Parkland Florida at Stonemason Douglas High School, we decided to go towards gun control as our topic,” student Will Borrevik said. “And so today we just finished presenting after a few months work about gun control and guns.”

Over the past several weeks, the students interviewed local elected leaders and conducted surveys with students and community members on the topic.

The project is based on “Project Citizen,” a curriculum from the Center for Civic Education and the Classroom Law Project designed to promote responsible participation in local and state government.
