        Since the inception of this project, every research team has had to present their final findings to their peers and the larger school community.  The purpose of these presentations has been to allow students a less formal and more creative way to share what they have learned and to provide exposure to one of the practical realities of environmental science:  the political need sometimes to "sell" the results of scientific research to a lay audience.  Toward this end, the students create 5-10 minute summaries of their investigations and their conclusions and are encouraged to find ways to share what they have learned in ways that excite and grab their audience's attention.

         Below are links to the best of these presentations, arranged chronologically starting with the 2003 program (when it became possible to record and save them as part of the project's web site).  We hope you enjoy!
