Citizen Science Projects are becoming ever more popular.
They are the perfect way to encourage curiosity and engagement with the natural world and help students develop and reconnect with their own sense of place. Citizen Science projects provide authentic inquiry-driven questions for students to answer through the scientific process. They allow students to take ownership of their data, share their results and engage in science. These types of activities lend themselves perfectly to in class teaching or independent learning. We will read “Exploring A Sense of Place” by Karen Harwell and JoAnna Reynolds and discuss the importance of place and Citizen Science Projects for promoting engagement in students. Holden educators will share their expertise and knowledge on how to successfully implement Citizen Science Projects utilizing neighborhoods and school yards and how this can complement and support your classroom learning objectives.
