Citizen science can open up a world of free STEAM learning opportunities for library patrons. From identifying butterflies to measuring light pollution, citizen science offers unique ways to engage every patron and allow them to contribute to the greater scientific community.
A webinar on Thursday, Nov. 14, will show you how you can access many free resources to help introduce, shape, or support citizen science in your library. Citizen Science Month (and Beyond!) at Your Library: Ideas, Tips, and Resources from SciStarter and STAR Net will take place from 2-3 p.m. Central Standard Time, 1-2 p.m. MST.
At the webinar, the STAR Library Network (STAR Net) will showcase impactful STEAM learning opportunities that put a focus on the Earth, such as citizen science, in 2020.
With support from the National Library of Medicine and based on feedback from the Citizen Science Association’s Citizen Science Day working group, SciStarter and Arizona State University are pleased to announce Citizen Science Month in April 2020.
