Project: Pesticide Burial

Contact Name: George Thornton (thorntong@chopka.wednet.edu)

School: Oroville High School

Date Completed: Fall 2000

Details: The class researched the history and current status of a contaminated landfill by Oroville. Their presentation included a short lecture by two students, a large map showing the area in question, a video of the site (created and narrated by students), a demonstration of toxicity of DDT, puppets as props, and a small map with overlays. The camera shifted from student to student, progressing through the presentation methods.
