Project TRUE: Science

During Project TRUE, our students conduct field research, ranging from mammals to water quality, and then learn to analyze their findings. They learn that science is a process, and the final piece is communicating their learnings to an audience.

Field Research

Project TRUE teams conduct field research on a variety of areas. See below for extensive list.

Analysis

Project TRUE teams work together to analyze and interpret data to determine what factors explain field observations.

Communication

Project TRUE teams present findings at research conferences and to the general public.
