Be a Citizen Scientist

Sci Sat 6-18-16

We hope to see families this Saturday, June 18, 2016, at the Marshall-Lyon County Library.

Please note that we will have both age groups in the Community Room and will stagger the start times. The focus for “Bee Connected” is on pollinators and plants that are easily observed by younger children. For older children and their special adults, we will have some science activities related to “phenological” observation and also offer some links to resources that allow non-scientists to contribute to scientific research and data collection.

Summer is a perfect time to explore the outdoors and the night skies. Teaching children to be aware of nature and the amazing science behind what we see, hear, smell, touch, and taste is important. Allowing children and young people to inquire about and explore science topics that interest them might contribute to a lifelong interest in science.

Below is a link to suggested resources for Citizen Science:
