OCS involves non–scientists contributing to science projects using the internet. This process can provide a richness and flexibility that, when planned for, offers authentic opportunities for practising science capabilities and engaging in real, meaningful science.

Learn from teachers’ who have successfully utilised OCS in their classrooms and discover the new and exciting resources the Science Learning Hub Citizen Science has to offer. At the end of this webinar you will  develop the confidence and understanding to use OCS effectively with your class to grow student learning and engagement with science.

This free online webinar will be valuable for primary through to secondary school teachers.
