  Script:

  Narrator: Listen to a conversation between a student and his environmental science professor.

  Student: Hi, Professor Williams - I(m here for our 1:30 meeting.

  Professor: Hi Michael. Thanks for being so prompt. That really makes

  a difference when I have so many students scheduled back to back. If only there could be more than 24 hours in a day.

  Student: (Laughs) I know what you mean.

  Professor: So, what’ s on your mind?

  Student: Well I’m here about my topic choice.

  Professor: For the upcoming oral presentation? By the way, how do

  you feel about speaking in front of the class?

  Student: Well I’ d have to say I’m most comfortable writing

  papers, but I’m not nervous about doing this presentation. It’ ll be good public speaking practice you know.

  Professor: Exactly, and certainly, it’ s a skill that is always useful.

  Student: Mm-hmm. Yeah, so the assignment was for us to talk about

  a current environmental solution? And I found so much eye opening information while researching. The only problem is, I don’t know which area to go with.

  Professor: Okay well, which areas most interest you?

  Student: Well I’ve spent a lot of time exploring the concept of wind

  farms. You know, using wind as a source of energy.

  Professor: Mm-hmm, go on.

  Student: Right um - lots of stuff on that you know types of wind

  farms and different designs, how they' ve been set up, how to get the most out of them.

  Professor: Okay, and what' s another choice?

  Student: Well, it' s a tie between wind farms and mushrooms.

  Professor: Mushrooms!? Hm! Tell me more about that!

  Student: Well, there' s a species of mushrooms that produces

  chemicals that can eat away at toxic waste - from petroleum products, pesticides and other harmful pollutants

  Professor: Yes, I've read research about this - but actually Michael

  it' s the fungus beneath the ground that affects the harmful pollutants. That' s an important difference

  Student: Oh ri-right that' s what I meant - I'll explain it more

  clearly in class.

  Professor: Keep it simple. Something like - just like trees produce

  apples, it' s the funghi that produce mushrooms - and it' s also those funghi that produce the helpful chemicals.

  Student: I understand - it' s just so amazing that something low

  cost and already there in nature could solve such a large pollution problem caused by humans

  Professor: It is intriguing. Wind farms affect, too, but I think most of

  your classmates will already be generally familiar with that topic. Whereas they might not have heard of this.

  Professor: Btw, what s the growing period for this species?

  Student: Ah it only takes a month to grow.

  Professor: Great! The university has a greenhouse that's sometimes

  available for research projects. Why don't you stop over there one afternoon, speak to the manager and ask if he' d let you use a small area of the greenhouse?

  Student: Okay.

  Professor: You could try to duplicate the results of the study!

  Student: In the greenhouse?

  Professor: Yes! You have three months until the end of this semester.

  It might make a strong final project!
