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.
