Think Like a Citizen Scientist CSA Journey Day (Waltham)
Citizen scientists are people who are curious about the world and want to make a difference. They volunteer to collect data and send it to scientists. As a citizen scientist, you may be asked to take photos of clouds or streams, use your smartphone to monitor water and air quality, count the butterflies in your backyard, play games to help with medical research, and much more. Once you know how to participate, the opportunities are endless!
During this Journey day, you will learn how scientists use the scientific method to find answers to scientific questions and solve problems. You’ll take part in a citizen science project, contributing valuable data to an ongoing project and learn about the importance of making observations, iteration, and collecting data over time.
Throughout the Journey, you will also learn what it means to Take Action. You’ll brainstorm issues you care about and problems in your community to help you decide on one problem to address.
Think Like a Citizen Scientist Award Badge included. Drop off event.
