SLI is a collaboration of CU, Simon Fraser University, Saint Louis University, TERC, and teachers in Colorado, Missouri, and Massachusetts. Our team is developing and implementing a model of youth infographics-based data journalism. We aim to understand how participation in SLI leads to appropriation of STEM literacy (e.g., data literacy/mathematical reasoning, visual representation, credibility of sources), and how to implement sustainable data journalism with infographics in diverse learning environments. We seek to foster youth engagement in communicating the societal impacts of phenomena examined by science or infused with technology.
