Science is for Problem Solving!

Oct. 4, 2021

What happens when you want to get something done but run into a problem or snag? Where do you go? Who do you talk to? Ultimately, how are problems solved?

SBAR Graduate Fellows, Tobi Omotayo and Luis Ramos Coronado, recently showed students in New Mexico how science is used to solve problems. They walked the students through hands-on activities that demonstrate the science concepts behind answering the questions, "What do you do if your bubbles are not big?" or "How can you stop your bubbles from popping too quickly?"

Guar-dians of the Biosphere is an after-school program designed for middle school students that focuses on science topics like chemistry and agriculture. Students are exposed to SBAR-related science topics and engage in related hands-on activities that encourage learning and exploration of the science and possible careers. Students have also created their own videos to showcase what they've learned (YouTube SBAR Guardians of the Biosphere). Over 450 students have participated in the Guar-dians of the Biosphere program since its inception in 2019.
