This workshop will focus on the scientific method, how scientists collect data, and prepare girls to take part in citizen science projects. You will get to work with the zoo and help identify challenges the animals are facing like habitat loss, climate change, pollution, invasive species, and poaching.
Girl scouts will gain the knowledge, confidence, and understanding
necessary to complete the “Think Like a Citizen Scientist” journey.
Girls will be well on their way to completion of the journey, but will
require continued participation from the girls after the workshop
(such as SciStarter data entry) and their Take Action Project.
Zoo admission is not included with the workshop; discounted tickets are available upon request.
Additional info: To comply with the mayor's face mask mandate, the Zoo requires masks or face coverings for everyone ages 5 and up in all public indoor spaces.
Minimum number of girls for this workshop is 10 and maximum is 25.
Cost per girl: $25
Cost per adult: $0
