Grades 4 - 8: Connecting Students with Scientists
Want to take your students on an amazing field trip? Scientists in Action connects students directly with scientists during a live broadcast from field sites or research labs. During these conversations, scientists demonstrate research techniques, share new discoveries, and demystify the scientific process.
This educational telepresence creates a "being there" experience and opens a window into science careers. Students interact with and look over the shoulders of scientists who are conducting exciting, real world research.
PREVISIT VIDEO: Highlights the scientist's work so you can familiarizing your students with the content. After watching the video, have your students write down their questions for the Scientists. View archived video content by clicking here.
