Learn how to engage your students in citizen science projects by signing up for this self-paced professional learning opportunity.

Self Paced Teacher Professional Learning Experience - Citizen Science

Whether students are learning remotely or in the classroom, they can be a part of active, real research about the changing ecosystems around them. GMRI’s Ecosystem Investigation Network hosts a growing set of citizen science projects investigating the changing ecosystems across the Gulf of Maine Watershed. We invite teachers across the region to engage with these citizen science projects as their students would through this self-paced professional learning opportunity. They will share reflections, plans, and resources with other participants.

What participation looks like:

  • Engage in authentic science work as your learners would
  • Share reflections and plans for implementation
  • Participate in two 15 minute meet-ups throughout the course of the spring
  • Provide feedback through short surveys

Benefits to participation:

  • Connections to other educators
  • Opportunities to unplug, get outside, and participate in authentic science
  • $150 stipend


These opportunities are generously supported by a grant from the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund (MOHF). MOHF is a program through which proceeds from the sale of a dedicated instant lottery ticket (currently Wild Winners) are used to support outdoor recreation and natural resource conservation.
