The Picture Post citizen science project - a way to engage students
Citizen science projects present opportunities for students to engage in authentic science projects that have them learn about and engage with their local environment, then share their findings with a larger population. One example of a citizen science project is the Picture Post project, which uses digital photography for environmental monitoring. Learn more about this project at the Picture Post website and how you can set up a post at your own school. You can also check out how students at Penn State Brandywine have brought the Picture Post project to their campus at their website: http://sites.psu.edu/picturepost/.
