Sustainability Science and Citizen Science for teachers, students and their communities.

*A FREE webinar for anyone who works with youth*

Brought to you by:  Project Learning Tree & Maine Audubon

This free 45 minute webinar will present two grant-funded programs which engage students to do real science out in their community. The Project Learning Tree program supports Sustainability Science lessons and experiential pedagogy while bringing Maine teachers and university research together. Maine Audubon’s “Out In The Field” Citizen Science project addresses key science standards by having students do relevant citizen science projects to improve habitat in their community.

Examples of exemplary programs around Maine will be presented.  There will be time for participants to ask all the presenters questions.

Common Core/ Next Generation Science Standards skills (e.g. working with data, presenting data, reading and writing informational text, inquiry process, design process, mapping and modeling) and big ideas (e.g. habitat, biodiversity, interdependence, systems, change over time) are key to both projects.

Who can attend: This webinar is open to anyone that works with youth.

When: October 8, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. to 3:45p.m.
