Perform an internet search to identify an instance of environmental pollution in your state. Use the example you found and the imaginary scenario provided below to complete the assignment.
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.
