In small groups, teams will execute an independent investigation of this broad area based on their individual interests. Students will grow in their ability to ask scientific questions, design appropriate experiments to address these questions, collect relevant data and observations, and analyze the data effectively. Students will disseminate their findings in written and oral formats. Students will also develop skills in evaluating the merit of scientific work of other researchers.
