I just received this notice from NSTA about an upcoming citizen science book and thought I would send it along since there are several citizen science projects involved with monitoring beaches, oceans and reefs that list readers may be involved with.
Have you created a lesson that uses citizen science to teach middle or high school students about life science? If so, consider submitting your lesson plan for inclusion in a book to be published by NSTA Press. The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2012. Writers whose lessons are selected will receive a copy of the published book, and their names will appear as authors of the lessons they submitted. For more information and submission guidelines, visit www.BirdSleuth.net/book.
This is being organized by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology so I am sure that projects about birds will be well represented. Let's make sure that the ocean is equally respresented as the sky! Since it is being published by NSTA it will largely be marketed to pre-college teachers and has the possiblility of impacting the next generation of scientists and as well as involving the public in issues important to this list serve.
