We go places, but what do we do with the billions of snippets of information we absorb? How do we process the information so that it means something to us when we can no longer be there?

Case studies provide a brief overview or examination of events that impact or alter the way people function and live day to day within the human and physical environment. They help by providing students with “real world” examples that relate to the theoretical content they are studying.
Students will prepare a case study illustrating the impact
Ann Linsley and a team of researchers from Texas A&M University are studying the impacts of humans on the land and in the water around McMurdo Station, Antarctica. About 10 teachers and 480 students joined the live event.
