Theme: Never Stop Questioning
Research Discovery - What are you Curious about?:
Rather than gravitating towards a general topic, try to think of a specific question your team wants to answer. Starting from a small scale and moving outwards from there will help to keep your research and presentation focused and meaningful. Your research for the Integrated Assignment should be current, significant, and have a specific base within the Biology/Chemistry fields.
- Beginning your research discovery on your favorite news site, reading a newspaper, or even on Facebook are all perfectly acceptable starting points.
- Alternatively, you may find the following resources helpful:
Research Article for Presentation:
Your article must be a peer-reviewed article from a scientific journal. For any additional resource, please use a critical eye to ensure their authenticity, credibility, and validity.
- Relying on Google Scholar to find your peer-reviewed article is perfectly acceptable
- You may also use TAMU-CC's Library Guide - Science, and we will use this later in the semester
- You may view Prof. Crocker's PowerPoint example to view how I found the article I presented to you in Seminar
