We created these videos to help students get started in scientific research. We are Anthony Carpi, Dean of Research and an environmental chemist at John Jay College in Manhattan, NY, and Anne Egger, Associate Professor in Geological Sciences and Science Education at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA. In each short video, we describe one aspect of conducting research, with examples from different disciplines—including our own work.
These videos are meant to:
- Explore the dynamic process of scientific research using examples that span disciplines and time,
- Promote students’ sense of themselves as scientists by highlighting the culture of science, including the nature of the scientific community and the diversity of its members,
- Empower students to participate in scientific research.
