Welcome to the Students Page of this website. Students are often the most valuable citizen scientists because they are often curious, observant, and have time to help! Resources will be posted and updated here for students to start contributing data and data analysis to authentic scientific studies.
Citizen science connects local observations and experiences (data) to real-world research and increases the participants’ knowledge of their surroundings and the scientific process.
