|Goal||Connect Zooniverse and citizen science to more classrooms.|
|Task||Share ideas and lesson plans with other educators.|
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 zooniverse.org 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.
