Abstract

Science Speaks started as a small project with a big idea—to improve national scientific literacy, primarily for high school students, through the simplification of primary research articles. We take tough-to-digest scientific pieces and simplify them so that they are easier to understand. Through this simple idea, we hope to teach young students about some of the historical perspectives of scientific research and the experiments which helped to shape their textbooks and understanding of what it means to be a scientist.
