Did you know that April is Citizen Science Month? Have you wanted to engage your students in real-world science? Join educators from the Arizona Game and Fish Department as we explore iNaturalist and other digital citizen science tools. Through iNaturalist, educators and students can document animals and plants that they see anywhere in the world, including their own neighborhood. By using existing features within the program, teachers can create class projects that can connect student observations, even if they aren't in the same room! They can even contribute to other projects hosted by both professional and amateur scientists from around the world. This webinar will serve as an introduction to iNaturalist and other citizen science digital programs. We will discuss potential classroom and home applications. Webinar will last approximately 1 hour. All participants will receive access to resources and a professional development certificate upon completion of the program. The webinar is free.
