NOTE: This workshop is listed as Citizen Science: Interactive STEM for Active Engagement on NCCAT’s website.
Join the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and NCCAT as we look at ways to enhance students’ environmental literacy through participation in citizen science projects. Get outdoors and explore North Carolina’s coastal ecology as we use the unique and beautiful ecosystems of the Outer Banks as a field laboratory to collect data. Become familiar with some of the many online citizen science databases and learn ways to use the data you and other citizens collect in your classroom. Participate in simple activities that incorporate technology, math, graphing, data analysis, and writing while introducing tools that will help you develop your own lessons and programs using citizen science data.
Registration information: This workshop is being offered in collaboration with the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching. Please visit NCCAT’s website for registration information.
