ABE Roundtable Meeting: Citizen Science and ABE


In the seventh installment of the ABE Teacher Roundtable series, our panelists discussed citizen science – projects that engage students in hands-on science with authentic data in their own communities. The panelists discussed the community benefits of citizen science; the challenges they have faced as well as successful strategies they have used to get students involved with real-world science projects; and examples of specific citizen science projects from their own classrooms.
