Student Perspectives: Student partners

John: (River clean-up project) Basically, I’ve known [my partner] most of my life. We played basketball for 10 years and we happened to be in the same class. We were both interested in the river being clean so we’ve decided to do something that would help maintain its environmental status as a really good river in our community. Basically, he’s more the speaking type. He can rattle off stuff. I’m more of the researcher kind of guy. I know the facts a little bit. He’s a presenter. [The partnership] works really well because we both can use our strengths and we don’t have to show off our weaknesses. He can kind of fill in where I’m not as good and I can kind of fill in where he’s not as good.
