On February 15th, over 30 elementary school teachers are gathered at Pepperwood to learn how to integrate citizen science into their science classrooms! Offered as a partnership between Pepperwood and UC Davis, this training aims to increase student engagement with science that extends beyond the classroom walls and connects to the Next Generation Science Standards.
In citizen science projects, students work with scientists to support data collection, make observations, and contribute to science in the real world. This training shares how to engage students with activities such sketching and data collection, and demonstrates what citizen science can look like in their classrooms.
We’re excited to partner with UC Davis to enhance science learning for elementary students!
