Click to download PDF of slides and audio, or watch together below.
This hour-long webinar introduces citizen science and opportunities for citizen science programming in 4-H contexts. It offers an overview of the wide diversity of citizen science projects (from astronomy to zoonotic diseases), outlines different participation opportunities (one-day events through individual inquiry), shares examples of what peers are doing across 4-H settings, and provides links to resources for getting started.

The webinar is a collaboration between 4-H experts in STEM and Youth Development (Nancy Schaff, NY; Jay Staker, IA; and Trudy Dunham, MN) and staff from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology (Jennifer Shirk, Ileana Betancourt, and Jennifer Fee).



A 2013 series of webinars on citizen science for youth development was offered by CYFERnet (Children, Youth, and Families Education and Research Network). Webinars are now archived and available for viewing.
