Digital science stories motivate students to become better scientists, more engaged writers and contributors to a larger community. We will demonstrate authentic tools and methods for publishing student work on the web and showcase 1st- through 6th-grade student projects including environmental lake study portfolios, video lab reports and insect engineering stories.
