Science Action Club: Birds

Feb 10, 2017

Through games, projects, and hands-on activities, youth in SAC: Birds  investigate nature, document their discoveries, connect with scientists, and design strategies to protect our planet. Afterschool staff receive in-depth training on SAC kits, activity guidebooks, and best practices for teaching STEM in the informal learning environment. The citizen science based activities are perfect for out-of-school-time programs!

Programs who register for the training are also signing on to complete the full 10 lesson plans this Spring with at least 15 students enrolled each session. Facilitators from each site will be asked to give feedback after each lesson in an online document. Participating sites will receive the $500 kit for free from the California Institute of Sciences along with the curriculum and free training.
