CELF Citizen Science: Inquiry to Action Program January 25th TX Workshop

01/25/2020 09:00 AM - 11:30 AM ET


A 2-hour professional learning workshop designed to launch participation in the CELF Citizen Science: Inquiry to Action program. Great opportunity for community networking!


CELF Citizen Science: Inquiry to Action is a semester-long program that engages educators and students in project-based STEAM learning outside of the classroom. Tailored to each school and community location, we offer professional learning workshops for teachers paired with on-site support to implement a project-based learning module that connects students to real-world challenges in their own neighborhoods. The program culminates in a Spring 2020 Student Symposium, bringing together all participating schools to present their findings and pollution-prevention plans to community members and real-world policymakers. The program combines the development of 21st-century skills with the motivation and creativity generated by solving a problem in one's own community. 

Participants in the program will:

  • Implement a project-based STEAM learning unit.

  • Participate in professional learning workshops paired with on-site educator support.

  • Collect data with AirBeam monitoring technology combined with the HabitatMap crowd-sourced data-sharing platform.

  • Focus on air-quality while learning pedagogical principles that apply to a range of citizen science learning opportunities.

  • Engage with local concerns through student-led inquiry.

This opportunity is grant-funded. Join one of the workshops, connect with our educators for on-site support, and come together with other classes implementing this program at our 2020 Spring Student Symposium.

If you attend one of two professional development opportunities you can attain 2-hours of Continuing Professional Education credit, receive an air quality monitor, connect with local environmental partners, and enjoy a free lunch with fellow educators. You will also gain access to the 2020 Student Symposium, the culminating event for the program.
