Course Description:

Join us and discover how student observations and data are used by scientists in this emerging trend of Citizen Science as a model of scientific practice in the classroom! Learn about school friendly projects that engage students in authentic scientific inquiry at all grade levels and across disciplines. Select an existing Citizen Science project of interest to participate in or learn how to implement your own inquiry or monitoring project by creating unique research questions applicable to your curricular needs. We will also discuss classroom assessment strategies and various opportunities for your students to design their own projects, effectively analyze and communicate the information they have gathered, and consider ways they can celebrate, disseminate and publish their meaningful contributions to real scientific research!

~Offered in partnership with the Sevastopol School District
