Free Scottsdale Festival Celebrates ‘Junior Citizen Scientists’
Posted By Jamie Killin on February 7, 2018
“This event will connect people with the Sonoran Desert. Youth and families can share an experiential day learning about how scientists and members of the general public — citizen scientists — study our environment,” saidTiffany Sprague, manager of the the McDowell Sonoran Field Institute.
The event will feature more than 15 hands-on interactive learning stations that aim to show participants the wonders of nature. Students that complete eight activities or more will earn a certificate.
“We look forward to hosting Arizona children in the beautiful McDowell Sonoran Preserve and witnessing their awe and wonder as they learn about science,” said Justin Owen, executive director at McDowell Sonoran Conservancy.
