CoronaQuest Day 16

CoronaQuest Day 16 Challenge is Here!

 

Congratulations, Questers! You’ve made it to the final day of the challenge. You’ll notice that the challenge image for today is a blank sheet of paper. That’s because today’s challenge is open for you to write. You’re the author of the adventure. This is the day you start your journey as an independent Quester. Never stop asking questions and exploring.

Think back through each of the 15 challenges and compile what you’ve learned so far. Highlight your favorite experiments. Tell us about your experiences. This is the accountability challenge. It brings together the previous 15 days of learning. Make a photo collage, written essay, or video compilation (2 minutes or less) of your daily reflections. We are excited to hear what you learned about yourself, the coronavirus, science, and critical thinking.

Take your time on this experiment. It isn’t due until Sunday, April 12th, 6 pm PST. This is your written or visual thesis and every submission will be reviewed by the Real Science-4-Kids crew.  Dr. Keller is waiting to personally review your learning statements. Then, join her LIVE on Facebook this Tuesday. We’ll post the LIVE event time for you in the Facebook group and remind you via email.

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!

Instructor Tips:

  • Questers will track progress each day during the challenge. They can 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 Facebook group. Give us a quick thumbs up or post a picture. We would love to celebrate your successes as you move through CoronaQuest!
  • Day 16 is the accountability challenge. This challenge will bring 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 can 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 would love to send a personal note in celebration of completing the journey.

Eureka! Sometimes the answer you’re looking for is right in front of you. Other times you have to work very hard to find a solution. In science, answers aren’t always easily attainable, but if you keep asking questions and experimenting, eventually you will discover new information. For instance, scientists are currently experimenting to discover ways to help sick people. Some treatments will work and some won’t. However, all these attempts are important, even the ones that fail.

How do you think scientists go about finding solutions to problems? There are so many questions to explore. We can’t wait to see what questions and solutions you will discover today! Look closely at the 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!

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!

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.
