Inspiring Future Generations of Scientists Through Reading

The main goal of this project is to get elementary school students excited about the wonderful world of science that is happening right inside of them. To do this, I am planning to create a children’s book that will walk them through important parts of the immune system, as well as the different ways they can help strengthen how their bodies respond to various pathogens. Once the book is published, I am planning to hold readings in the community to help promote the outreach of the book. This will help students gain an understanding of the importance of the topics I am discussing, and will be a fun way to provide this knowledge to the community. I am also planning to write the book in both English and Spanish in order to increase the accessibility of the project.
