Tanya Battista, teacher—Broadview Avenue Public School, Ottawa, Ontario (for presentation in June 2010):

"Mr. Harris prepared a slide show presentation in our school library for one of the grade 8 Gifted classes that was both informative and entertaining for the students...After the presentation, Mr. Harris opened up the floor for student questions". Through this question period, the class demonstrated great interest in the information that was presented and Mr. Harris gave detailed, informative answers, while using humour...He ensured a professional approach which ultimately allowed students to expand their thinking and consider different perspectives to an imperative topic."

"Tom Harris spoke to a group of senior and junior students at Fellowes High School in May 2010...many students commented positively on the quality of the information and Tom's slideshow allowed them a glimpse of science in action...I would recommend Tom Harris as a speaker at your facility. Tom will challenge your students to think critically and analyze data as a healthy skeptic, skills necessary for all engaged in the physical sciences." Read whole letter.

"The lecture that you gave to my students on 10 February [2010], titled "Man's Awareness of Climate Change" was both interesting and stimulating. It fit in well with material in the textbook on geological processes and how climate change has affected various civilizations in the distant past, and your detailed explanations and illustrations added greatly to an understanding of the subject."

Keith E. Garrison, Executive DirectorArkansas Waterways Commission:

"Your presentation to the 2008 Arkansas Governor's Conference on Waterborne Transportation was excellent, exceeding our expectations! I've received a lot of positive feedback from those in attendance, and no negative comments. Your supporting visuals were outstanding as was your riveting, yet listener-friendly delivery. This was the seventh consecutive year that I've organized the conference, so I am quite familiar with the attendees and how they respond to the presenters. I cannot recall a speaker or topic that got their attention to the degree you did, and held it to the end." Read whole letter.
