Kids love asking questions, and doing authentic, hands-on projects.
There are plenty of opportunities to get your class engaged in real
scientific exploration, whether it is space, bugs, or birds. Thanks to
electronic devices and apps, contributing to scientific projects is easier
than ever. Instead of science being presented as a set of learned facts,
participatory activities like citizen science teach kids critical thinking
and inquiry so they learn how to “think like a scientist” – an important
21 st century skill. Learn more about implementing citizen science in
your classroom and about local resources available to help you do it.
