STEM Learning through Infographics

NSF Awards: 1441561, 1441471, 1441481

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

This video explores the STEM Learning through Infographics project (SLI), which utilizes a “citizen science journalism” approach to empower secondary school students to produce authentic news reporting on a personally relevant STEM topic.

In the SLI project, a team from University of Colorado, TERC, Simon Fraser University, and Saint Louis University is refining, implementing, and assessing a sociotechnical system involving teens in infographic-based data journalism with the purpose of fostering engagement with STEM and improved scientific/mathematical literacy. The system involves supports for data search and visualization, with the latter based on studies of mathematical thinking with data visualization tools.

Our collaborative project is developing and researching resources and activities to facilitate youth engagement in data journalism in a diverse set of contexts—high schools, an intensive summer camp, and an out-of-school internship.
