What works in YCCS?

We asked our partners – expert researchers and practitioners — what it looks like when youth participate in community and citizen science. The resulting video speaks to the tremendous potential of youth-focused community and citizen science (YCCS) in the classroom, in the field, in a science museum, or anywhere in between.

Of course these results are not guaranteed. It takes careful planning, and thoughtful implementation. Learning what works in youth-focused community and citizen science is a primary goal of our research. In a second video, we and our partners describe key practices for youth and educators, that can deepen learning when youth engage in community and citizen science.

Learn more about these key practices, and case studies of youth-focused community and citizen science at yccs.ucdavis.edu.
