Description

Working collaboratively in teams, students engage in targeted projects to address critical information and research needs. Each team uses the scientific process to conduct research using digital data resources. The final product is an infographic that uses data visualization to communicate a science “story.” The infographic uses engaging visuals to quickly and clearly communicate the data and problem complexity. 

Students completing this series of exercises will be able to:

  • understand the fundamentals of the scientific process (“scientific literacy”) and the value it can add to solving biological questions
  • identify appropriate data and evidence to address a critical research question
  • Investigate existing data resources
  • Access appropriate data resources
  • Clean, configure and standardize a dataset 
  • Critically evaluate information derived from a dataset
  • Analyze and visualize data for effective communication of science
  • Apply scientific and technical knowledge to specific tasks and problems
  • Engage in independent learning, critical thinking, problem definition, and problem solving
  • Participate effectively in individual and team-related activities
  • Apply ethics in the practice of science
