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!
- 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!
