Interested in learning more about the European Citizen Science Association (ECSA) and Doing it Together Science (DITOs) Student Challenge?

Here is a presentation from the workshop, "Synergies between Citizen Science and Education" in Leysin, Switzerland in March 2018, that delves into the turning scientific documentation in the classroom into creative science communication for an external audience.

The challenge encourages students and teachers who have participated in a citizen science or inquiry-based project in or around the classroom to take their scientific methods and results and share a creative multimedia story!
