TALON talk

In science class this year we made “TALON Talks” which were on a topic of our choice and were based on the TED Talk format. If you feel like watching my “TALON Talk”, feel free to leave a comment. The link is down below and thank you for watching my talk.

    Hello Lucas,

    Your TALON Talk was very interesting and intriguing to listen to! Your voice is very clear and you have good pronunciation (of tricky moss names too)! I learned how a tardigrade looks like and what they are as I have never heard of them before so this talk was really educational 🙂 I also learned about different types of moss and now I can hopefully name a few when I’m out in the woods next time!
    My question for you is: How big is a tardigrade? Can you see one with a microscope like the ones we had in class?! It’d be cool if we could!

    Hi Lucas!

    The talk was very cool. I liked how you spoke clearly and slowly, it helped me understand better. I really liked how you put the images of tardigrades in between to show me how they looked like. I honestly learned a lot in this talk.

    My question is where did tardigrades come from and how did they spread out in different environments to have extreme resistance?

    Hi Lucas!
    Your TALON Talk was awesome! I had never really heard of a tardigrade before, so it was really interesting to learn about them. I especially thought that it was cool that they were able to withstand many different environments. (Also, you’re right, they look incredible) I really liked how your images and text were clear, they made it easier to focus on what you were trying to tell us. I also liked how you were able to actually go outside and learn about your topic as well! I was wondering, how were tardigrades discovered?

    Lucas! your talk was aboslutely filled with fun and interesting information. I was fascinated by how you were able to connect two subjects into one presentation. I think one spectacular aspect that you achieved is that you went out and applied the knowledge while observing in real life! I think that is a very important part in learning in general, and you have achieved that. A subject I would push you on is to provide a little bit more information about your outdoor expedition and what you have learned from it. One question I have is are there any natural preditors that they are susceptible to? Overall, I learned a lot from this presentation, Great Job!
