Online Workshop Recording: Increasing Community Resilience to Extreme Weather and Environmental Hazards - The Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) Project

Online professional development workshop recording about the Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) Project (2022).

DESCRIPTION

This workshop was recorded on 02-15-2022

The Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) Project aims to engage the public in active learning and resilience planning around heat waves, sea level rise, extreme precipitation, and drought. Throughout 2021, participating science centers from across the US organized and implemented science-to-civics campaigns in their communities with the goal of increasing resilience to extreme weather and environmental hazards through citizen-created data, local knowledge, and community values. In this online workshop we heard from the CSCRC project team at the Museum of Science, Boston and SciStarter about the outcomes of this NOAA-funded work. We also heard from select NISE Network partners who participated in the project about ways anyone can engage their community in this programming.

The Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) education project is led by the Museum of Science, Boston in partnership with Arizona State University and Northeastern University, and builds upon previous funding from NOAA in which a set of modules were created and used to engage participants in active learning and resilience planning about four natural hazards (heat waves, sea level rise, extreme precipitation, and drought).
