Like every good scientist we took our research and findings public. To do this we created a PowerPoint that showed all the phases of creating our action project. The phases were inventory (issues and assets), issue selection, research (policies and practices), choosing a practice, burning questions, creating a project goal and taking action. We presented the PowerPoint two times; once for our community in the southeast side ofChicagoatSandRidgeNatureCenterand once forFieldMuseumemployees and guests at theFieldMuseum. At the presentations we also shared with our audiences the video we created and the games and activities we designed. We were all very nervous to speak in front of a crowd but we practiced our public speaking and put our fears aside to get through it. In the end it was such a great feeling to have shared with our friends and family what we had been working on for the last six weeks!
On our last day it was hard to say bye. We got to know each other pretty well and worked so hard as a team that it would be difficult not to see each other the following week. Although, the internship had to come to a close we promised to stay in touch with each other and the Field Museum. Who knows, maybe we’ll be back here some day.
