Baldwin Presents Research
Normally, educated scientists present their findings and conclusions at the
Greater Everglades Ecosystem Restoration (GEER) Conference. However, at the 2017 event, junior John Baldwin, shared his internship experience in a poster presentation along side the professionals.
Baldwin worked in a science lab at Florida Atlantic University. The pilot program enabled students to gain primary research experience in active university labs through supervised independent projects in Everglades science. The poster presentation, "Bringing the Classroom to the Science" joined Baldwin with his supervising professor, Dr. Brian Benscoter.
