Main Project Information
Goal Connect Zooniverse and citizen science to more classrooms.
Task Share ideas and lesson plans with other educators.
Where Online only

ZooTeach is a website where teachers and educators can share high quality lesson plans and resources that complement the Zooniverse citizen science projects. Citizen science offers a unique opportunity for any person, of any age, of any background to get involved and make a contribution to cutting edge science. Here at Zooniverse headquarters we believe that getting students involved in citizen science offers educators a free, easily accesible and inspiring opportunity to bring real science into the classroom.

How to Join

If you'd like to browse or download the lesson and resources available on ZooTeach, you are free to do so, no login necessary. If you'd like to comment, send share a lesson with a friend, or upload something to share a login will be required. All you need to create on is a valid email address.

We know teachers and educators are very busy people and that not everyone will have time to share, but if you have used a Zooniverse citizen science project in the classroom, or if you have an idea to share, we'd really appreciate it if you did.

Zooniverse team members and collaborators are developing a range of lesson plans, and will continue to do so, but the this project will benefit greatly from additional community involvement.
