YCCS Educator Resources from the Center for Community and Citizen Science

Overview Heidi Ballard

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 have been researching implementation of YCCS projects to explore when and how YCCS works best.

You can learn more about our findings and recommendations by looking at the Framework for Youth Learning in Community and Citizen Science and Key Practices. Delve into YCCS practices in the project Case Studies, look through our Resources for Professional Learning, Classroom Resources and Resources for Lesson Planning and explore a range of projects that people are doing with youth in the “Resources for Selecting a Project” tool.
