ERG PhD student Alana Siegner and ERG alumna Tanya Dimitrova (MS ’14) conducted the assessment.
“Science Journal for Kids (SJK) is a US-based non-profit which produces an open-access online science outreach and teaching resource called Environmental Science Journal for Kids. SJK adapts recent environmental science research published in high-impact peer-reviewed journals making it accessible to the general audience, in particular K-12 students. SJK publishes on average 50 adapted science articles per year. A foundational assumption is that if young readers are exposed to original scientific research presented in accessible manner, they will develop a better understanding of the scientific method and process.”
