The NISE Network runs a series of free online workshops to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, and create more channels for partners to share their work and learn from each other directly.
Online Workshop: Increasing Community Resilience to Extreme Weather and Environmental Hazards - The Citizen Science, Civics, and Resilient Communities (CSCRC) Project
Tuesday, February 15 2022; 2pm - 3pm Eastern / 11am - 12pm Pacific
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 will hear from the CSCRC project team at the Museum of Science, Boston and SciStarter about the outcomes of this NOAA-funded work. We will also hear from select NISE Network partners who participated in the project and learn about ways you too can engage your communities 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).
