Science doesn’t sleep in the summertime. It’s all around us, all the time. All you have to do is look, or observe, and Think Like a Citizen Scientist!

The Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey combines two things we know girls love: STEM and the Outdoors. Girls will learn how to use the scientific method through taking part in live experiments to practice making observations, collecting data, and asking questions about the natural world around them. The focus is conservation of biodiversity; by the end of this program the girls will better understand their environment, the impact humans have on it, and inspire others to act with them as spokeswomen for the environment!

Girls will earn this Journey by completing three virtual sessions and by participating in a SciStarter Citizen Scientist Project, collating their data to be submitted to support research being completed by scientists at The California Academy of Sciences and UC Berkeley.
All components of the Journey are included in this program. The girls will complete a Take Action project with inspiration from organizations actively working to protect biodiversity including the Akron Zoo, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, The Reef Institute, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Lion Country Safari and more!
