Experience or expertise/projects of note:
lead Youth-focused Community and Citizen Science 10 cases in CA, also project on youth learning through natural history museum-lead CCS (NSF AISL), PI Our Forests in school elementary forest monitoring (NSF DRK-12) – all with Environmental Science Agency as a frame, middle and high school science teacher for 5 years, train secondary science teachers, teach participatory action research methods.
Reasons I’m excited about this project:
To see how ESA is getting applied to new contexts and really operationalized and built-upon and improved as a working concept! And how to actually design for the ESA goals. And to engage with all these climate change science and education experts.
