Science demands sophisticated skills not generally taught as part of standard science curricula. For example the scientific community values collaboration and teamwork, critical and focused observation, the use of technology for data collection, evaluation of information, and communication skills. All of these skills can be cultivated through the use of media making projects. A good first-step media project to use with students is a narrated slideshow. Use this self-paced module to understand how to create a slideshow as well as the implementation of such a project in the science classroom.
