The Citizen Scientist Project builds the capacity of K-12 teachers and students to apply their budding competencies in computer science, science, technology, engineering, art, and math (C-STEAM) to identify and address issues of community concern in collaboration with scientists and community agencies. Through this work, we seek to democratize science by including more diverse voices in question posing, data collection, data analysis, and data-informed advocacy. Our ultimate goal is to prepare environmental and climate change literate citizens, who know how to care for each other and our home planet. We use Citizen Science as a way to capture these intersections and many partnerships contour this ever-evolving, interdisciplinary work.
