What is it?
The Student Citizen Science Challenge is an online Europe-wide challenge that encourages students (and teachers) to get involved in a local citizen science project or to start one of their own!
Student groups submit a visual or multimedia story sharing their method, observations, or reflections on a citizen science project in or around the classroom. The story could be a video, photo essay, comic strip, or a collection of scientific illustrations. Stories are displayed in an online exhibition, where students can present their story to a wide audience and see what sustainability investigations other students around Europe are undertaking. The online exhibition is housed by Esri UK.
Who should participate?
-Secondary school students or mature primary school students anywhere in Europe.
-Formal or informal educators & students: extracurricular activities welcome!
-Groups of students accompanied by a teacher or mentor.
Show off what you have been working on!
Students and teachers who have been working on a sustainability-related, biodesign or environmental monitoring citizen science project: share a creative multimedia story about your project. Get your creative side flowing and put on blast the science problem-solving going on in and around your classroom.
Not yet involved in an existing citizen science or student-led project?
Get involved! Hands-on environmental problem solving is exciting for students and teachers alike.
