Nuts and bolts

  • 30-minute (or more!) inquiry

    During our conference call on July 12, a few of you had the great suggestion that it would be useful to have the blank 30-minute Inquiry in electronic format so that you could easily distribute it to your group. Here it is. If you have access to the Microsoft program Publisher, you should use the .pub file if you'd like to modify it for your purposes. Otherwise, you can use the .pdf file. Thanks for a good idea that will help other leaders!

  • Bi-monthly phone calls
    Thanks to everyone who has joined one or more of our adult leader phone calls. We've learned a lot from you during these calls, and hope that they've been useful to you. So far, we've discussed these questions: "What are you doing to get your clubs started off on the right foot?", "What are you doing to train the youth on the citizen science protocols (and to ensure data quality)?", and "What experiences have helped your youth prepare for designing an investigation?" If there are topics you'd like to cover in a call, please let us know! Look for e-mails from Grant with upcoming call details.
