For School Children

Teen Citizen Scientists

Intended for teens (13 and older), this program will delve into the world of citizen science, scientific thought, and project design. Teens will use the platform iNaturalist to design their own observational or experimental study, collect data from the gardens, and create a presentation showing what they learned. This program would work well for students interested in environmental research, biology, or have a passion for the outdoors or science. We will use an app called iNaturalist, which is available on both iPhone and Android smartphones. Our goal for the program is to be a month long series, which will meet one day a week for three hours.

We are hoping to run a pilot session of this program during the summer of 2019. Please contact our educator, Katie, at kbird@washoecounty.us if you are interested!

Dates coming soon!
