Postby Laureng10115 » Thu Jan 28, 2021 12:15 am

What is the current state of the bodies of water?
How are marine animals affected?
How are humans being affected?
What solutions are you currently employing to reduce water pollution?
What qualities are you looking for in a trash-filtering device to make it a great tool in helping reduce water pollution?

Hello Laureng,

If you are seeking to interview a marine biologist, please review the guidelines for interviews at this link:


When you have rewritten your interview questions for a marine biologist, please post your questions in the forum for Interview Requests.

On the other hand, if you are planning to do a science project on water pollution, please pay particular attention to item 4) in the above link:

(4) Please do NOT post background research questions about your project. Examples of background research questions are: "What ingredients are in bread?" "What is DNA and how does it replicate?" "Why do plants need the sun to survive?" "How does an electric motor work?" It is the student's job to try and answer such questions by doing their own research. Interview questions should be about the expert being interviewed, NOT questions you want to have answered about your project. Examples of good and relevant interview questions are: "How long have you worked in this field?" "Why did you become a scientist?" "What do you like most about being a biologist?" "I think my project is useful and important because [discuss why you think it is useful]. Do you agree?"

If you are having trouble finding a resource to answer a background research question, or you don't understand a particular concept, it is fine to ask a more specific question AFTER doing your best to figure it out on your own. However, such questions still do not make good interview questions. Please ask those questions in a different post under the same topic.

Thank you for following these guidelines.
