Hey 6th graders: Anyone out there like BUGS??
Explorit Science Center is recruiting 6th-8th
grade students for the Science Action Club!
Explorit Science Center is recruiting students (6th-8th
grade) for an exciting opportunity in May 2016—The Science Action Club (SAC)!
Designed by the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, the SAC
promotes student engagement in hands-on, citizen science activities in
collaborations with iNaturalist. In May, students will delve into the world of
insects and other arthropods, contributing data to iNaturalist and discovering
the many ways we can learn from insect adaptations and behavior. Investigations
of the natural world and mastery of the scientific process including
hypothesizing and data collection will expose students to the daily process of
doing science and give them a taste of a scientific career!
Dates/times*: May 15th, 22nd,
and 28th from 9 am − 1 pm.
Workshop Location: Explorit Science Center, 3141 5th Street,
Davis, CA 95618.
*Students must be able
to attend all workshops on “Bugs” in order to participate in the SAC. Workshops
are sponsored by the California Academy of Sciences and Genentech.
For more information or

SAC Coordinator) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (530) 756-0191
