Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Making fun science zines/ books

Through my online platform Fuzzy Synapse, I have worked before on cell biology zines, I would like to teach the art of communicating various science topics in a fun and easy way in this project. We would work together to design various interesting, artistic zines on any scientific topic of interest. Also, depending on the interest of the student, we can also aim to transform the content into science illustration book.

Understanding The Brain In and Out

In this project, we will read, understand, and design summaries of neuroscience research papers in the form of single-page doodle illustration. We can then compile and communicate the research of various paper together in form of a series.

Science Videos

Making 2-minute videos explaining research mentioned in scientific papers by reading and understanding various scientific papers on any topic of interest.
