Telling your story


1. What are you investigating?

- Share a bit of background about the existing citizen science project you are participating in.

- Or if it is a student-led project, share your research question or the community or global challenge you’re tackling.

2. Which part of your project do you want to highlight?

- Interesting results?

- A rigorous method that other students could implement in their science classroom?

- A reflection? Did your scientific inquiry inspire individual, school-wide, or neighborhood action?

3. What medium(s) do you want to use to tell your story?

- Have you always wanted to make a video? Try out a scientific illustration? Now's the time to let your creative juices flow!

- Can this medium be easily uploaded online
