Project Summary

Beyond the Box is a collection of resources that was created to utilize digital storytelling to support students in various grades as they explore their future. From promoting diversity to focusing on important human values, these collections of stories highlight how individuals have found their way into the sciences.  

The project is comprised of two main collections: Beyond the Box - Centering Black Voices in Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Beyond the Box - CASNR Edition. Both collections offer resources to collectively help...

  • Engage young students with careers in agriculture, natural resources, and other CASNR-related careers
  • Provide youth in underdeveloped communities with a way to connect with science and practice career skills 

  • Introduce students to scientists of color in order to promote diversity in these educational spaces

  • Tell important stories in an accessible, adaptable, and interactive way
