June 2019
Welcome to the June 2019 edition of the BSCS Science Learning FieldScope newsletter. We want to keep you better informed about the FieldScope tool for citizen science and its capabilities, as well as what people are doing with FieldScope and what changes are taking place as we continue to evolve the tool. We welcome your ideas for future content. Please write us at info@fieldscope.org
STUDYING POLLINATOR PREFERENCES WITH BUDBURST
Healthy ecosystems with thriving pollinator communities are important for the health of our planet! Budburst, a citizen science project out of the Chicago Botanic Garden, currently offers the public an opportunity to contribute to an exciting campaign.

WORKING WITH DATA IN TABLES
Learn how you can work with data in tables in the FieldScope interface for visualizing information collected from citizen and community science projects.

VISUALIZE THIS
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), nearly a quarter of all shark species are in a ”threatened” status (i.e., threatened with extinction). Learn about how scientists are monitoring the locations of various shark populations. 

FIELDSCOPE IN THE LIFE SCIENCE CLASSROOM
Take a look at how Dr. Linda Petersen at Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) in Fairfax, Virginia uses FieldScope to facilitate middle school students' investigation of their local watershed and development of systems thinking.
