Summer Session Students Make a Splash with Short Films
Coastal Marine Research (BIS 124) was taught at Bodega Marine Laboratory during Summer Session I by Professor Eric Sanford. Undergraduate students in this course receive training in all aspects of the research process while conducting independent research projects in teams of two. Students also develop communication skills by sharing their findings with other scientists through written reports and oral presentations.
An additional component of this course trains students to communicate their research effectively to the public by producing science outreach videos. Students highlighted their research projects for a general audience in 3-minute films that premiered in a Film Festival at Bodega Marine Lab on August 1 and are available to watch below.
