The Andrews Forest LTER site, and its citizen science partner Oregon Season Tracker, is featured in the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s (OMSI)’s Science At Home Weekly, which offers free, curated, digital content for K-8 students focused on weekly themes.
The content, which includes a reading, DIY activity, career connection, and design challenge, is aimed for a K-8 audience but is appropriate for anyone with an interest in Long-Term Ecological Research.
Check out Phenology (week 30) at: https://omsi.edu/at-home/weekly-science-activities.
Also check out Data Science (week 12), which features long-term data from the Andrews Forest LTER program.
We hope these engaging at-home activities will keep you curious—inspiring you to start your own citizen science project.
