Terry McGlynn, associate professor of biology, was in Costa Rica in January at the Organization for Tropical Studies’ La Selva Biological Station as a visiting professor for its Introduction to Tropical Ecology, a four-week course in field for graduate students. During the month students, who came from universities through the U.S. and abroad, also learned how to use video to share their work. As part of the learning process they produced videos for an internal Student Film Festival.
ForÂ National Geographic’s Explorers Journal, a member of a two-man video production company who taught the students the basics of filming and editing wrote about the experience and the resulting videos the students produced: Out of Their Element: Science Students Produce Films in Costa Rica.
Here is the video McGlynn’s team produced related to studies they were doing on a unique foraging habit of bullet ants:
