Past Science Fellow Projects
Bacteriophage Research and Teaching Documentary: Using video and the use of a blog, Kohana Leuba documents bacteriophage research in two very different settings- a cutting-edge research laboratory and a class for first-year students.
Faculty Advisor: Prof. Thomas Webster
Computation Across the Curriculum: Nicholas Sinnott-Armstrong developed tools to integrate computational skills into the curricula of various departments, including Biology and Archaeology.
Faculty Advisors: Profs. Jan Hesthavan, Casey Dunn, and Susan Alcock
CreatureCast: Natividad Chen developed workshops to train and mentor other students to write stories and develop video podcasts so that Brown's CreatureCast project can be sustained in future years. These animations provide supplemental instruction for a number of courses in ecology and evolutionary biology while highlighting concepts in science for students of all ages. The animated stories "Rhizocephala," "Jumping Spider," "Resurrection Fern," "Tardigrades," and "Anglerfish," featured on the CreatureCast website below are a direct result of Nati's mentorship in the Science Center.
Faculty Advisor: Profs. Casey Dunn and Erika Edwards
Ecolog:IEA: (Integrated EcologyAnimations) Science Fellows Ashley Adams, Harmony Lu, and Asya Rahlin began developing educational videos demonstrating fundamental ecological concepts within the general context of evolution. Their interest in integrating ecology with art led them to create these videos. Click here to learn more.
