For this assignment please select a specific research group.

Before you start this assignment, review your Week One NOAA Activity Part 1: Ocean Exploration powerpoint presentation. In week 1, you wrote about a research group that was studying a certain kind of marine pollution. This week, you’ll present more information about that same kind of marine pollution.

You’ll also select an environmental group that could directly benefit from the research conducted by the research group. For the purpose of this class, “environmental group” means a non-governmental group whose primary goal is to protect the environment through venues such as public education, environmental monitoring, or political advocacy; and which typically uses volunteers as well as professional staff, and relies on donations in addition to grants or fees. It does NOT include research institutions (like universities, for example); or government agencies (like the EPA or NOAA, for example). If you aren’t sure about a particular group, check with your instructor.

Develop an 8- to 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation about the two groups.

  • For assistance with this type of assignment, review the UOPX Help with Microsoft PowerPoint® Assignment.

  • Include a slide that summarizes the research mission you described in week 1.
  • Describe the type of marine pollution addressed in the mission.
