Decision time

The polar research proposals are in. It’s time to make a decision.


Using your online proposal, prepare to present your proposal to the class. As a class, decide which group made the best proposal. What features made this proposal better than the others? You may want to produce some guidelines to help you make judgements about each presentation. Here are some suggestions:

  • Will the project develop new areas of research?
  • Does it collaborate with other areas of polar science?
  • Do you think the group presented well as a team?
  • Was the proposal explained well and did it have clear aims?
