We have discussed two types of terminations that can take place with projects, natural and unnatural termination. Natural termination ends with ordinary closures where projects reach their termination dates with an actual completion in mind known as Termination by Extinction. Unnatural terminations end for numerous reasons. This assignment requires you to read two articles and to seek and use additional external sources to answer the questions below. The Mox Project (Links to an external site.) will probably end with an early termination. The Seawall Project (Links to an external site.) also involves an early termination. Both projects are terminating for similar reasons. Once you have read both articles, answer the following questions: With each article you have read, based upon what we have learned with the termination of projects, which type of termination would describe the above projects and why? Based upon the reasons which have caused these projects to reach the early termination level, create an action plan describing how the project can get back on track based upon the dilemmas each project has faced so far. Compare and contrast the problems, symptoms, and causes each project has faced. Be sure to cite additional external sources so that you are presenting facts (not just opinions) in your responses.

THE WEB SITE
On the upper right of the home page is a registration link. Either before or after you resister you can review the active projects by clicking the “projects” links on upper right of the home page. Choose a project that interests you. I would prefer you choose an astronomy related project but that is not necessary. My second choice would be a science related subject. If you do find a project that piques your interest that does not fit either subject, please select that one. I want you do something you find particularly interesting.
Once you click on project you will find background information as well as a short tutorial. Some projects will have some practice slides for you to check your skills. As you work through your classifications or data gathering most sites will insert a practice slide from time to time so you can evaluate the quality of your work. You can stop at any time by clicking on “done for the day” and pick up anytime.
You will write a one to two page report on the project you participated in. It is to include a general overview and your general impressions of the project, description of what you learned, and what, if anything, was of particular interest.
