Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors are invited to “Think Like a Citizen Scientist” with Johnson & Johnson on September 19, 2020 from 10 a.m. – noon! Through the Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey, girls learn how citizen scientists make observations, collect data, and help scientists conduct scientific research.
Register NOW: https://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/en/events-repository/2020/think_like_a_citizen.html
Registration closes Thursday, September 10 or when we have reached capacity.
At this program, girls will:
- Hear from a J&J employee about their jobs and career path
- Observe and collect data about their surroundings as they work on activities from the Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey
- Participate in a citizen science project where they’ll record data about clouds for the GLOBE Observer: Clouds project from NASA
- Reflect on what they’ve learned and how they can take action
At the end of the event, girls will be encouraged to create a sustainable Take Action project that solves a problem in their community. After the event, girls can plan and create their projects to earn the Take Action award and complete the Journey.
Johnson & Johnson’s generous support of the Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey for Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors prepares girls to experiment, explore their environment, and push boundaries in healthy ways, all while learning how they can improve the world through STEM.
At this time, this program is open only to active Colorado Girl Scouts. Each Girl Scout must register individually. We will use Zoom to host the program virtually. Instructions for how to prepare at home and instructions on how to log in day of will be emailed to all participants prior to the program.
Level appropriate Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey awards will be mailed to each participating Girl Scout after the program.
