CoronaQuest Day 11

CoronaQuest Day 11 Challenge is Here!

 

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP TO POST YOUR RESULTS AND OFFICIALLY ENTER THE CORONAQUEST CHALLENGE

The CoronaQuest challenge lasts for 16 days. Each of those days brings a new challenge that’s different from all the others. How many things around us can be broken down into parts? Do they look different when each piece is examined independently from the others? What happens when we look very closely at the small parts that belong to something bigger? Do you notice anything unique? Some things can be broken down into pieces so small that we can’t see them with our naked eye. Can you think of some examples? Look closely at today’s image. What do you see? Think as creatively as can be. Research and explore your favorite questions and record your findings for us to see.

Good luck, Questers. Let the challenge begin!

Remember to use your imagination and ask a lot of questions. You never know where your questions and experiments will lead. It’s totally up to you. Think big! Watch out for the pitfalls of “perfection” along the way. This challenge is about thinking creatively, not finding a right answer. We are here to cheer you on and lead the way.

The instructions for this challenge remain consistent throughout the 16 days, so Questers know what to expect and can be self-directed while learning to think big. No question is wrong. No question too farfetched. Map out your questions and narrow your focus to just one area of CoronaQuest study. Then, get ready to dive deep, learn big, and create something AMAZING!

For a chance to win the microscope or iPad:

  • Questers track progress each day during the challenge. They do this by taking pictures of their work, reflecting in a notebook, making a video, or creating a piece of art as part of their daily reflection.
  • Then, post about the challenge in the comments section of the daily post in the Facebook group, or email us directly at [email protected] Give us a quick thumbs up or post a picture. We love to celebrate your success!
  • Day 16 is the accountability challenge. This challenge brings together the previous 15 days of learning. Questers will be asked to make a photo collage, written essay, or video compilation (2 minutes or less) of their daily reflections. We are excited to hear what they learned about themselves, the coronavirus, science, and critical thinking.
  • Final submissions will be sent to [email protected] One submission can be made for a group as part of a larger organization, or students can be encouraged to enter individually. We leave that up to your discretion. Dr. Keller will choose 2 recipients to receive the CoronaQuest challenge awards.

Information, clues, data, and facts! There are so many things to examine and test. Sometimes scientists aren’t sure which way to go, but by using resources and following clues they can navigate their way to new information and answers. Just remember that some information can be confusing and sometimes outcomes aren’t what we expect. Keep navigating toward the goal and eventually you will find your way. Look closely at today’s image. What do you see? Think as creatively as can be. Research and explore your favorite questions and record your findings for us to see.

Good luck, Questers. Let the challenge begin!

You’ve asked a lot of CoronaQuest questions and that’s part of what a scientist does every day. Learning to ask questions is all part of the scientific method. Surely you’ve discovered there are many different avenues of discovery that branch out from the same image. Just like science, your method of discovery might lead to a different outcome than someone else’s. Look closely. What do you see? Think as creatively as can be. Research and explore your favorite questions and record your findings for us to see.

Good luck, Questers. Let the challenge begin!

All you Questers continue to amaze us with your creativity and curiosity. It’s such an honor to be on this journey of discovery with you. Sometimes it’s important to pause and take a step back from your focused study to get a better view of the overall learning. It’s a chance to assess, breath, and catch up. Today is the day to think about all of the questions you’ve formulated and researched. Use this time to remember the science adventures you’ve taken this week and then get ready, because tomorrow we bring a brand new challenge your way.

Now that you’ve had a chance to pause and reflect, share something you’ve learned with the group. Leave us a quick comment in the Facebook group or reply to our email and let us know what has been your favorite challenge so far. What have you learned? We want to hear about your science adventure! Look at some of the experiments other Questers have done and give them some encouragement.
