Some of the most essential skills for natural scientists include the abilities to investigate, organize, and present concepts to their peers?both orally and in written format. This is the purpose of Natural Science Presentation: it provides the forum for the presentation and evaluation of student research. Each student presents a 15-20 minute oral presentation on his/her research project and submits a formal thesis for the College archives. The formal paper includes a complete description of the research project, methods, analysis, final results, and scientific discussion. A completed Research and Disciplinary Discourse paper must be submitted before the end of this course. The scheduling for the seminar presentation takes place during SCI 3900 Research Design one year before the presentation.General Education: WAC 4: Capstone Writing and Research
