• Question: If you could have even more money for the prize, what would you give it to besides what you already want to give it to?

      I would expand my project and definitely look into doing a YouTube channel where school children in Africa could teach students in other countries about the parts of our past that took place on their continent, as well as about the wonderful wildlife that lives there today.

      If I had even MORE money (and lots of awesome volunteers), I would like to see students in LOTS of different countries and on multiple continents do the same with the history and resources of where THEY live! I think it would be awesome if we could start a global conversation about the everyday science of everyday lives that is led BY students and FOR students! In addition, I think we could think up lots of different ways to take care of the natural resources in our areas and maybe give advice to each other on how we might do this. You’d be amazed to see how the actions of kids in the United States can affect the environment in somewhere like Indonesia, for instance.

      How about you? What would you want to teach students from other countries about the evolutionary history of where you live or the animals and science that you encounter and use everyday?
