Senior Keystone Project: Engaging Young Students in Science

Keystone Presentation Date: Thurs., May 18, 1:45-2:20 pm
For my Keystone project, I explored how to engage younger children’s minds in science. When I was younger it was often hard for me not to get overwhelmed by textbooks, so I hoped to create something that I believe would have helped me.

For my primary, I took the chapter from our standard biology textbook on eukaryotic animal cells and I rewrote and reformatted it. I took that information and used it to make my own “fun” textbook that incorporated cartoons, activities and plenty of color. For my secondary mode I will be using my textbook as a teaching tool in the middle school science classes where I am the teaching assistant.
