Science Strikes Back aims to encourage community members in Milwaukee to critically analyze environmental issues and solve problems in their communities. Through the development of collaborative relationships between students, educators, and content specialists from locally-based organizations, Science Strikes Back produces a strong network in Milwaukee for continued environmental science education and natural resource stewardship.  This project is particularly focused on community science and great lakes water literacy.

    Thank you, Robert and team. This is really interesting work. I'm curious about how you motivate community partners to engage in the fairs.

    Hi Catherine- thanks for the question.  We have a wide network of collaborators that we connect with and we also enjoy working with new partners that learn about this by way of youth in their school or neighborhood having connections themselves to adults involved in community efforts

    Great work!  I was curious about how you encourage students to pick topics they really care about (as opposed to finding a project in a book to replicate).  Do students go through a process to help with that?

    Hello team.  People are becoming more aware of environmental justice these days.  You mention it in your video, but I was wondering if the topic has been a motivating force in any of your students.

    Hi David, 

    Yes, many of the projects are related to taking action to create change. Escuela Verde's curricular lenses are the environment, peace and justice so they try to fold in aspects of justice, including skills needed to take action. For this event, watching students teach other students about what they are doing feels like the greatest motivating force.

    I love your point about raising questions about who does science and for what purpose.
