Join Students for Climate Action for part three of a four part series on understanding challenges and how to engage your community through meaningful programming.  Attendees are not required to participate in each part of the series, all are welcome to attend.   

There is no better way to learn than doing.  As they say...you retain 10% of what you read, 20% of what you see, 30% of what you hear, 50% of what you see and hear and 80% doing. What is important to know when you educate, there are different learning styles for everyone and the more you do, the more you learn. 

We will highlight some great hands-on programs that are easy to implement to create citizen science!  This will include: the A Day in the Life program, a one day event at a local aquatic ecosystem for water quality studies and biodiversity inventories.  All collected data is uploaded and usable for land use decision making; and a climate change citizen science project to highlight and research how climate change is affecting our shorelines and sea level rise. 

This presentation will be a train the trainer program with on-going assistance on programming.
