2006 BWF Project
Increasing Student Interest in Earth Science through Problem-Based Learning, Use of Technology, and Field Experience

Program Overview
Students from several local high schools spent part of their 2006 summer conducting research sponsored by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Project at Elizabeth City State University. Students were mentored by faculty, staff, and mentors from throughout the community. The research consisted of environmental, ecological, and geological subjects meant to raise their interest and to instuct them in the displines of general research methods. Part of their time was spent working in the classroom conducting research and documentation, but the majority was spent gathering information from the field.

Individual research project titles, their members, and links to further research can be found below.
