Scenario: There is a concern about environmental pollution in your state or community. Because of your expertise as an environmental scientist, you have been invited to be a panelist at a town hall meeting in which you will present an overview of the issue. The audience consists of community leaders, members of the scientific community, and some local residents.
Create a 5-to 8-slide presentation (Microsoft® PowerPoint®, Prezi, or Sway®) in which you explain the problem from a scientific perspective. See rubric below to learn how your presentation will be graded.
Address the following in your presentation with detailed speaker’s notes:
What are the scientific factors that are causing the issue?
How is the issue identified? Describe the data associated with the problem.
What solutions or opportunities should be explored to address the issue further?
Incorporate relevant key words from the Environmental Pollution Key Terms document.
Include a title page, introduction, conclusion, and list of references. The title page and references are not included in the slide count.
Include helpful visual aids and limit your main points on the slides to about 5 words per point. See rubric for more details.
Use at least 2 outside references. Cite these references, include a references list, and use APA format for these elements along with your title page.
Format your presentation and references according to APA guidelines.
Your presentation (Microsoft® PowerPoint®, Prezi, or Sway®) should include detailed speaker notes, similar to what you would present orally.
Submit your assignment.
