Participating in citizen science provides a unique and accessible way to facilitate student science investigations. Students engaged in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's citizen-science projects have been asking and answering their own questions about birds for more than a decade, conducting original experiments and observational studies.
By engaging in citizen science and investigations, students become scientists and stewards of their local environment. They make observations, generate their own question, collect data, and get access to online datasets they can query. Students can even publish their own research conducting investigations inspired by citizen science. These are great ways to meet Next Generation Science Standards.
