This module prepares adult volunteers to lead youth in completing a project that involves a science experiment. The eLearning module redesigned for Penn State Extension’s 4-H and adapted content from an existing PowerPoint presentation and source material from the subject matter expert. The redesign involved restructuring content to take advantage of the interactive capabilities of Storyline 2 and incorporating rich visuals to bring to life the experiment’s connection to real world stormwater management.

Audio narration provides additional information and guides volunteers through the module. The course player or user interface is minimal and allows learners to navigate freely using forward and back buttons.
