Madison, Ala. (WHNT) - Horizon Elementary has a new addition to it's campus that was built by the hands of a former student.

Nick Meyer is a freshman at Sparkman High School. He built the elementary school an aquatic outdoor classroom as part of his Eagle Scout Requirements.

The classroom gives students access to the stream that boarders the school's property, so students can enjoy hands-on experience outdoors. They now have the opportunity to conduct stream studies and science experiments.

Meyer partnered with Lowe's and his Boy Scout troop to create the new addition. He said he felt it was important to give back to his alma mater for his project.
