    • Citizen Science: A Growing Role National 4-H Conference USDA / NIFA Division of Youth & 4-H April 9, 2013
    • Overview ● Social Media ● Science Videos ● Community Mapping Applications National 4-H Conference
    • Social Media National 4-H Conference
    • Situation: ● ● ● ● ● ● Invasive Species of North America: Boll Weevil - Texas Army Worms - Nova Scotia Pine Beetles - Wyoming Emerald Ash Borer - Indiana Japanese Beetles - Illinois National 4-H Conference
    • Solution: ● ● ● Utilization of previously existing social media. Encourage public to participate through technology. Make data available for scientific research and databases. National 4-H Conference
    • Facebook ● ● ● Facebook page dedicated to photo sharing. Location services allow accurate pinpoint of problem species. Ease of sharing would effectively spread the message. National 4-H Conference
    • Instagram ● ● ● Photos may be uploaded for species identification. Implement a hashtag for uploaded photos to share data for species in different areas. Built in Location services for an accurate location. National 4-H Conference
    • Potential Partnerships ● Department of Natural Resources ○ Helping control the spread of invasive species ● 4-H Clubs & Newsletters ○ Encouraging our clubs to join/participate ● Advertizing ○ Newspapers, Flyers, Social Media Sites, etc. ● USDA ○ Warn farmers about potential spread of pests ● Farm Supply Chemical Company ○ Connect FS with potential customers for pest extermination.

    • Science Videos National 4-H Conference
    • Overview Objective: ● To get more involvement in science ● Teaching science through helping them make the videos National 4-H Conference
    • Video Content 4-H STEM Youtube channel It will contain: ● Promotional videos ● How to videos ● Fun facts ● Science experiments ● Assistance with 4-H projects ● Explanation of general citizenship science ● Information on rare and unique species
    • Additional Info ● ● ● ● The videos will be maintained by volunteers. Individual communities can get involve. Statewide video contests can be held to involve youth. Youth create a youtube channel and if it becomes popular, they can make profit. National 4-H Conference
