PH 206 Environmental Education
To educate the public and raise environmental awareness scientists have to invest a great portion of their time to outreach activities. Many scientists take advantage of social media such as facebook, twitter or youtube. In this age of technology smartphones have become widely distributed and allowed us to take photographs and short videos everywhere we go. As part of another course assignment PH 206 students were to compose a 5-10 min educational youtube video. The video needed to be about a naturally occurring earth surface process that is typical for Ohio but currently impacted by human activities and consumption. The aim is to educate the public about environmental issues in Ohio. This was a great opportunity to be creative!
