Welcome to the November 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
Think about the last time you heard a frog or toad. What did it sound like? Are you curious about the significance of those sounds? If so, check out FrogWatch USA, a citizen science program run by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
How bright is your night sky? Globe at Night is a citizen science project that collects data about night sky quality all over the world. Their aim is to “raise public awareness of the impact of light pollution by inviting citizen-scientists to measure and submit their night sky brightness observations.”
We are looking for 12-15 middle or high school classroom teachers interested in piloting our new "Invitations to Inquiry" lesson materials, which get students working with real-world data from citizen science projects using FieldScope.
