Citizen science with The Science House is the perfect starting place for educators interested in integrating citizen science into curriculum. The merits of engaging in citizen science abound, benefiting both participants and researchers. There are hundreds of projects suitable for all ages, but we will focus on just a few that will provide educators meaningful ways to engage their students in real, authentic scientific research with actual scientists. When students engage in citizen science, they make observations, begin to formulate questions, experiment, analyze data, and ultimately construct deeper understanding about the natural world. You and your students can make contributions to science!
