49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look! I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.

Thanks to 2 grants, from @NEHgov and @usedgov, I worked with @WikiEducation to create a project for my #HSCI in Latin America class at @MissouriSandT/@sandtcasb. Sharing links in thread to edited articles on @Wikipedia. Students did AMAZING work. Almost 1 million total views!
