The application for the 2017-18 Citizen Science program is now open!
This year’s STEM Matters NYC Citizen Science program connects middle school teachers and students to ongoing Citizen Science research missions that focus on preserving and restoring the health of New York City’s estuary ecosystem. Each research mission will enable teachers and students to directly participate in an ongoing scientific investigation, while simultaneously exploring ways that they can improve estuary health within their local community. The Citizen Science program is structured as an after-school club, and will include modules focused on field research, data analysis, and the development and implementation of a student-designed service-learning project to positively impact the health of New York City’s estuaries. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, September 20; click https://tinyurl.com/CitizenSci17 for more information and to apply.
We will review applications in the order that they are received, so we encourage you to submit an application as soon as possible to maximize your chances of being accepted to the program.
