Waterville Projects 2006
Audubon Presentation February 8, 2006
Introduction: where, who, why, when
On Thursday February 8 four students from Waterville School went to the Audubon Society meeting at the Wenatchee Museum to present our outdoor projects.
What we talked about
The first project we talked about was the Waterville watershed study. K.C and Connor talked about the bioblitz and the animals at the creek Janelle and Katie talked about the water testing, soil testing, and plants. The second talk we explained was the Horney toad project. We explained how we work with our farmers to answer questions and showed the video produced by the George Lucas Foundation. Then we told about the farmer books which show farm fields and information about each one. Then finally, we showed the city of Waterville tree project. After the presentation we talked to the people and answered questions. We also handed out our own business cards while eating cookies.
What went well; what problems we had
Technical difficulties made our presentation challenging. First the microphones would not work, then there was no sound then it came on in the middle of the movie and there was a short on the wire on the microphone we were using. We had to keep pulling the cord down to make it work. It got annoying. In spite of these problems we were patient, poised, and accomplished what we needed to do.
How we felt about the experience
Janelle: "I felt nervous/excited. It was a small crowd compared to others I have presented to. I like the cookies that they had."
K.C: "It was my first presentation. I was a little scared but it also felt good."
Connor: "I thought it was fun for my first time. I forgot a couple of my lines but no one noticed."
Katie: "I thought it was fun for my second presentation but the problems that we had was not very amusing although I'm very glad that the sound started working in the middle of the presentation."
