Luquillo LTER Schoolyard Data Jam
The Luquillo LTER Data Jam invites high and middle school students to find interesting ways to present scientific data to non-scientist audiences.
Students use ecological data collected at the El Yunque National Forest by the Luquillo Critical Zone Observatory, Luquillo LTER and USGS Water to create a project that presents the data in a non-traditional way. An important component of the activity is encouraging students to get creative. Project examples include children’s books, raps, videos, models, presentations, and infographics. Students will present their project at the Luquillo LTER Schoolyard Symposium hosted by the University of Puerto Rico in May, 2016.
Thursday, January 28 - Registration due (students’ names submitted by teacher)
