Consultation with local experts

In some cases, in order to establish the authenticity of research questions, local experts from the community make presentations to students using relevant data.

For example, a school in Quebec was interested in studying the effects of humans on a local river and its watershed. The director of a local nonprofit organization, the Council of the St. Charles River Watershed, made a presentation to the students highlighting several issues and invited the learners to partner with him in investigating the problem further.
