Extreme Biology at Science Online ’10!

By Ms Baker

Students and Ms. Baker pose together after winning the Google Sidewiki Challenge!

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:

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:

Lastly, here is a video collage of our entire experience at the conference:
