Description

In 1998, we began offering an independent study to primarily juniors and seniors that has served as a substitute for public speaking in most of our majors in the College of Natural Resources. Selected, outstanding students in our college develop a natural resources based presentation that they then deliver to between 15 and 20 middle school biology classes. An interactive on-line outline of each presentation allows the public school teachers to review and schedule presentations to meet their curricular needs and situation. The students keep track of all their scheduling on-line and through e-mail.
