Science Stories, by Teens

During a recent visit to the Field Museum in Chicago, IL, I was delighted to find an exhibit showcasing a museum program that offers opportunities for teens to tell stories about science through video!

Reminds me of something I was recently told: if you ask students to explain something in the form of a video (rather than in writing or via multiple choice test), you are likely to get much richer explanations, deeper inquiry and more insight into their thought processes.  Great to see opportunities like this are available and going well. Wish I had had experiences like this as a kid!
