Webinar 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. ET

Citizen science is the involvement of members of the public in scientific research. Children can be online citizen scientists and help in conservation and protect natural resources in three ways: Increase scientific knowledge like a scientist, encourage related 21st century skills and explore science-related careers.

Citizen scientists can contribute in many ways, including helping to track patterns in space or time, in the discovery of species and fostering environmental stewardship issues. Citizen Science projects and activities flow across a variety of fields including ecology, astronomy, medicine, computer science, statistics, psychology, genetics and engineering. In this session, participants will learn how to adapt citizen scientist projects into their virtual 21st CCLC programming.
