Hundreds of thousands of people contribute bird observations to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (CLO). Scientists use these data to understand how birds are affected by habitat loss, climate, and environmental changes. These insights inform actions to protect birds and habitats. CLO offers several citizen science projects that work well in educational settings.
Zooniverse is a large global platform where volunteers can assist many different professional researchers. All projects can be accessed via the internet, making it easy to participate regardless of where you are in the world. Contributors study authentic objects, like videos of animals in natural habitats or specimens from museum collections.
This research-to-practice toolkit contains research briefs, case studies, and educator resources for facilitating any citizen and community science projects. The resources highlight key practices that support youth in both learning science and becoming agents of change in their lives and communities.
The Citizen Science Association (CSA), a member organization dedicated to the advancement of citizen science as a practice, maintains a discussion listserv where educators, researchers, and others engage in lively discussion and resource sharing over email. You do not have to be a member of the CSA to join.
The Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program is an international science and education program that provides students worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.
Education resources are distributed across many websites and program offices at NOAA and partner websites. This portal is designed to help educators access these resources from one location. Materials selected for this site are organized by themes, collections, and content types that are aligned with common teaching topics and expressed needs of educators. Linked resources are organized into collections that provide the user with a toolkit of materials and activities suitable for integration into a variety of educational settings. With the exception of Elementary science, collections are not grade specific, but resources are labeled where applicable. Additional NOAA resources that support educator professional development, academic scholarship, career exploration, and education grants are also available. All materials linked from this site are free for use and distribution unless expressly noted.
With NOAA’s Data in the Classroom, students use real-time data to explore important environmental issues (El Niño, sea level rise, coral bleaching, water quality, and ocean acidification), and develop problem-solving skills employed by scientists. Access online and classroom-ready curriculum activities with a scaled approach to learning and easy-to-use data tools. Teaching resources for each issue area include a Teacher’s Guide, Supplemental Power Point, Student Activity Sheets, and Science Standards Correlations.
Originally a video series for museums and other institutions, Ocean Today has grown and become very useful for educators. Ocean Today’s series for students and educators, called Ocean Today Every Full Moon, delivers a new collection of short videos about a single topic, every month on the full moon.
