As the COVID-19 virus unfolds, all schools across Bay Area, and eventually the whole California is transitioning to virtual engagements, Earth Team included. The “Something in the Air” team at Castro Valley is exploring a new way of learning and teaching. In these first few sessions, interns learned and practiced resume building and interview skills.
In the next session, interns collaborate with each other via a Zoom breakout room and are able to create a science storyline that is engaging and fun for their peers. This lesson stems from a Pixar workshop that makes scientific topics more accessible to the general public.
