Check out Science Connect at ImagineIF! In this video, Library Advisor Emily unboxes the Exploring Biodiversity Citizen Science Kit, now available at all ImagineIF branches.
What is citizen science? Citizen Science is when the public participates in and contributes to real scientific research. The data you collect using our kits will directly benefit the work being done by actual scientists!
With the Exploring Biodiversity Kit and your smartphone, you'll have everything you need to make a living record of life on Earth as you encounter it. When you record and share your nature observations on the iNaturalist app, you'll be contributing research-quality data for scientists working to better understand and protect our natural world. The kit includes tools to use with your phone including a tripod and various photography lenses, wildlife pocket guides, binoculars, and a convenient backpack to carry it all in.
