On January 15, eight students from Staten Island Academy traveled to Research Triangle Park in North Carolina for the 4th Annual Science Online Conference. Four freshman – Mike S, Jack, Alex, and Carl – joined four juniors – Melina, Salina, Brooke, and Ammar – to spend the weekend with scientists, journalists, educators, and web developers from all over the world.
In addition to meeting amazing people, the students attended specific sessions on a wide variety of topics and they will be publishing posts about each of those sessions on this blog in a few days.
On Sunday, the students presented at their own session titled, “Blogging the Future: The Use of Online Media in the Next Generation of Scientists”.
Here are some video segments from our session:
- Jack’s Games
- Carl and Alex’s Educational Video Games
- Mike’s Blogs
- Ammar’s Dynamic Websites
- Brooke and Melina’s iPhone Apps
- Salina’s Web Survey
Session attendees have blogged really nice responses to our presentation:
Check out this video for “Sights and Sounds” from the Conference. The very end is our favorite part for obvious reasons.
During the conference, we interviewed some conference participants:
- Salina interviews Beth Beck from NASA
- Mike interviews Marine Biologist David Shiffman
- Melina interviews artist Glendon Mellow
- Melina interviews Ammar, Brooke, and Salina
Lastly, here is a video collage of our entire experience at the conference:
