Field Ecology Research and Teaching Course
Under mentor supervision, teams of undergraduate students design and complete ecological research projects in a field setting. Each team also creates a teaching activity based on their research project. Teams engage community members and K-12 students in their teaching activity during a field day, and through visits to schools and other institutions. ISU students gain experience in written, visual, and oral communication by developing research and teaching activity proposals, research reports and outreach materials, and by delivering a presentation of project results.
