Submitting student projects to the SPACE website: A resource for faculty

SPACE is interested in writing that relates in some way to the sciences, technology and society. The sciences includes the social sciences—economics, political science, psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc.

If you have student projects that fit that description, SPACE invites you to consider submitting them for publication on the website.

Individual projects

If you read an excellent individual student project that you would like to recommend for the website, the simplest and most efficient way to proceed is:

  • to ask the student to submit their work directly through the SPACE submissions portal
  • or to send the student's work to Ursula Sommerer via MIO with a CC to the student

SPACE will coordinate with the student from there.

Class projects

Over the years, SPACE has also published many class projects by faculty across the disciplines. A class project entry on the SPACE website begins with a short description by a faculty member of an assignment and is followed by multiple student responses to that assignment. Publishing a class project offers teachers several potential benefits:

  • provides additional motivation for students to do their best work, since their work may be shared publicly.
  • engages the community with ideas and information that teachers believe are important.
  • creates a template and examples of the assignment that the faculty can then show students in the future.
