While everyone is practicing social distancing, we wanted to provide a glimpse of all the STEM educational programming we offered before the pandemic. One of our programs, Youth-Led Citizen Science Network for Community Environmental Assessment, helps students who are underrepresented in the sciences, identify as scientists through participation in citizen science. Jannatul Ferdous, one of our great graduate students on the project, wrote a blog post on the Spider Spotter citizen science app that the students used last fall. Check out her blog post and check out Spider Spotter! We will continue to post more content on our STEM programs in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
