Projects Summer 2018

 

Nature Museum TEENS Projects (After School Matters-Summer 2018)

Thirty teens from across Chicago have developed their own investigations focused on a wide range of urban environmental and ecological topics. Below you will find links to each of group’s project. Their project pages include their research question, methods, and results. Data for each investigation can potentially be gathered throughout Chicago. If one of the projects interest you and you would like to contribute data, download the Epicollect5 app to your smartphone or tablet, search for the project data form within the app and start contributing!
