DOWNLOAD THE EVENT FLYER:
Middle School Teachers explored the Waikamoi Forest Preserve and the Waihee Dunes and Coastal Wetlands Refuge last week as part of the Maui Watershed Citizen Science Teacher Workshop. Using iPad Apps for Citizen Science like Project Noah and Marine Debris Tracker, teachers collected data on biodiversity of these unique ecosystems on Maui and logged marine debris found on shore.
Teachers from five schools on Maui will be participating in a three-day workshop in April. As a result, middle school students will engage in citizen science relating to the island’s fragile watersheds.
The culminating task is for students to develop Maui Watershed StoryMaps on various topics.
WHEN: One Friday, Two Saturdays – April 8, 9, & 16, 2016 8:00 am – 2:00 pm
