Ever wonder how you can contribute to Scientific Research? Like to study bugs, animals, weather or the environment? Come to the Brownie Think Like a Citizen Scientist Workshop and learn how you can help scientist with their research and “making the world a better place”!

Scientist are looking for citizens to help with research that they are not able to do in the field. Some of the projects they are looking for help with are studying bees, local amphibian populations and other species. Recruit your family to help and become a Citizen Scientist.

In this workshop we’ll explore how scientist are being assisted by citizens who provide critical data for their research studies. Brownies sharpen their observation skills through activities that challenge them to notice changes in people's appearances and a group of items. Girls learn why it is important for scientists to use observation and are introduced to citizen science.
