Are you looking for a way to include citizen science in your outreach but not sure where to start? The National Ecological Observatory Network's (NEON) Citizen Science Academy (CSA) is a professional development resource designed to help educators successfully engage learners in key aspects of citizen science from making observations & measurements to visualization and more.
NEON's CSA offers facilitated, self-paced, online courses for formal and informal educators wishing to incorporate citizen science into their educational programs. Developed and facilitated by leaders in Citizen Science, our Professional Development courses also provide opportunities to earn optional continuing education credits.
The Citizen Science Academy Mission is to provide online professional development resources for educators to support effective implementation of Citizen Science projects and activities that focus on ecology and environmental sciences.
