Resources for Educators

With Youth-focused Citizen and Community Science (YCCS), youth contribute to authentic science. They can do this through data collection, but also interpreting or sharing findings. But what does this mean for science learning? To answer this question, we began conducting case studies with YCCS projects in Northern California and bringing together key stakeholders to explore when and how YCCS works best.

You can learn more about our findings and recommendations at Key Practices and Resources. Delve into YCCS practices in the project Case Studies, and explore a range of projects that people are doing with youth in the “Explore Projects” tool.
