With the help of Science teacher, Robyn Hickey, first year students Casey & Maggie completed an editorial together for the purpose of making Science more accessible for children.

Physical therapy and lung function in children with asthma: is it helpful?

Casey provided the artwork, and as a group, the girls brainstormed and came up with the idea to represent the lungs as trees – as they are the organs for breathing. They included children playing around the trees to represent the physical activity element of physical therapy from the article.

Robyn and Maggie broke down the article and created an editorial accessible to children of the same age. Overall, the importance of the project was to make science and medical research available and readable for children.

Robyn commented that "It was a great project overall and definitely something I would love to do with future class groups as this could be done for any journal article. It was a great tool for teaching the girls about bias/credibility of sources and scientific writing".

Well done girls - we are all very proud!
