CoronaQuest Pause and Reflect
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.
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!
- 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.
