dc.description.abstractScientific literature is often difficult for people to understand, however the concepts researched and discussed are important to build scientific understanding among the public. Youth academic journals, such as Frontiers for Young Minds, have created an opportunity to share scientific research with children in terminology they understand. For this project, an article by Kindsvater et al. (2012) was adapted and submitted to the journal Frontiers for Young Minds to teach children between the ages of 8 and 15 how maternal age and size affects offspring size in Xiphophorus birchmanni . The purpose of this project was to interact with primary scientific literature and develop skills to communicate scientific concepts to others.en_US
