Join this event for a fun conversation with the creators of the EarthSchool citizen science quest and to learn about Earth Challenge! Suitable for all ages, educators, students and learners of all ages alike. Care about the earth? Want to make a difference with citizen science? Come to this event!
Earth School is an initiative from TED-Education, the United Nations Environment Programme, and other partners to support more than one billion students who are unable to attend school during the current crisis. Earth School features 30 days of "Quests," nature-focused content, and environmental adventures for learners of all ages. Each Quest includes a discovery video and quiz, combined with a series of engaging learning resources, including citizen science projects — all curated by experts. This event will host folks who helped create Quest 26 – The nature of citizen science: Jessie Oliver (Australian Citizen Science Association), Caroline Nickerson (SciStarter), Mary Ford (National Geographic Society), and Anne Bowser (Wilson Center).

Beginning in 2020, Global Earth Challenge™ helps engage millions of people while integrating billions of data points from new and ongoing citizen science projects. Right now, they are trying to understand how insect populations like bees are changing. Collect data on bees today, or support research on air quality, plastics, and food security anytime!
