Showcasing Research at the University of Iowa Through Blogging and Social Media Outreach

We want to use the Stemosphere blog and social media outlets to display research that is being conducted by University of Iowa students and faculty. Each profile will be compiled by conducting an interview, constructing an Instagram post that highlights the research, and writing a blog that goes further in-depth to the background and the methods being used by the researchers. We hope to encourage audience engagement with the posts to increase theextent of our project. The final project to be shared at the donor event will be a collection of all our posts and blogs to show the variety of research we highlighted and the various ways we explained the research. By showcasing the work being done on campus, we hope to heighten interest in science topics and research.
