Session Title:

ED035. Virtual and In-Person Educator and Student Research Programs Promoting Authentic Scientific Experience

Session Description:

We invite presentations of experiences, models, and outcomes of successful initiatives that provide authentic research experiences for students and educators at all levels from elementary school to undergraduate education. We especially encourage programs that have successfully adapted to new social distancing measures and online models of doing research within a new global context. We encourage submissions from research participants (students and educators) as well as research facilitators including organizers, leaders, and staff. Presentations was include overcoming challenges with virtual engagement, best practices in engagement challenges, and tools that allow maximum engagement. Other topics may include recruitment strategies, mentoring, student outcomes, development of new tools for research, evaluation results, and lessons learned from past efforts. Presentations are welcome from all scientific disciplines.
