One major project we have collaborated on this semester is “Interview With A Scientist.” This project entails multiple groups of students attending a lecture and interviewing the keynote scientist, then creating a blog post and social media post about the lecture.
The final projects are meant to be “applied projects” that stem from student interest and design. All final projects were pitched from the students and each student signed up for which project most interested them. In this way, the students have taken control of their own learning by designing and implementing projects that suit their future professional interests.
Overall our mission is to bring new scientific discoveries to our readers and viewers through new media.
