High Tech Citizen Science: Educator Training

  • Thursday, September 26, 2019, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Friday, September 27, 2019, 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM


Citizen science has a unique power to connect kids to nature and spark their interest in science. Citizen science transforms students into scientists as they make and submit scientifically-relevant observations. Students are motivated because their work directly contributes to scientific understanding and helps address real-world problems in fun and meaningful ways.


Learn how citizen science activities impact real-world science. Conduct your own inquiry investigations. Practice hands-on with iPads, binoculars, a trail cam, GPS units, a wildlife camera, and a wind meter (all available to borrow) AND have some fun in the Siuslaw Model Forest. Learn how to create authentic science experiences inside and outside the classroom.

PERFECT FOR: school teachers, community educators, youth group volunteers, and any adult who works with kids. Participants are required to attend both sessions.
