ScienceLIVE offers K-12 students and teachers the ability to interact with active field science through guided access to research teams, live research updates, interactive web resources, and the use of lesson plans developed by and with the scientists. Lesson plans are designed using actual data and current state curriculum standards. Each of these services are interconnected, allowing for students to participate in research-based lesson plans while creating a relationship with the research team through video and written blogs, live webinars, and the ability to participate in actual citizen science activities.
At this moment scientists are busy conducting exciting and intense field research around Colorado in attempts to answer the mysteries of the natural world. Unfortunately this work goes largely unnoticed by the public and is often misunderstood. Novel methods for science outreach must address these concerns and further develop resources for scientists, teachers, and the general public. It is ScienceLIVE’s mission to act as this bridge between scientists and the public through a series of interconnected services designed to create a stronger relationship between science and the community.
