Trevor's Senior Project: Wildlife Biology

The 12th graders at Trevor's school complete a year-long Senior Project related to one of three areas: Career Exploration; Community Service; or Creative Expression. They spend August and September coming up with ideas, learning research techniques, selecting a mentor, and doing preliminary investigations. In October and November, they turn their ideas into a formal pitch and present it to their teacher and fellow students, as well as the principal and a panel of parent or community volunteers. Once their projects are approved, they move into the doing phase, which can last through April. In May, the seniors present their projects to the school, parents, and community members. The projects are always as unique and interesting as the individual students themselves. 

Trevor's Senior Project is "Studying Wildlife Biology," which fits into the Career Exploration category. He has applied to study Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at UC Davis (fingers crossed) so he hoped this project would not only help him learn more about careers in wildlife biology, but also help him decide among the four areas of specialization offered in the major. I combined a picture of Trevor giving his project pitch and two of the slides from his presentation on this layout:

When I ordered the photos, I knew I wanted to use the animal-themed paper scraps a friend gave me a long time ago. The papers were each about 12" x 5", so I sketched out a design that would feature them and still have space for the photos and some journaling. It was a happy coincidence that the design I planned worked so well for Game 2 of Bash Bowl. 

I used stickers for the title, which is on a tag, and there are three photos on the layout. So this page earns 3 points for the Scrappin' Banshees. We need every point - Twisted Scissors walloped us in Game 1 by a score of 454 to 358. Let's go, Banshees!
