Streaming Science is an undergraduate student-driven project-based learning science literacy program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). The mission of Streaming Science is to introduce public audiences, especially middle and high school students and teachers, to real-world scientists and critical agricultural and environmental research through multiple interactive communication platforms.
Through a series of courses and experiences, UNL Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communication (AESC) students are developing videos, podcasts, and live interactive electronic field trips with iPad multimedia backpack communication kits.
Over the 2018 spring semester, the Quantitative Life Sciences Initiative worked with Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communication students to highlight the importance of data science. In all, students produced ten podcasts with UNL colleagues in the field whose work centers around big data.
