Wonder Program Session One – The Results!

Thank you to all Citizen Scientists who contributed data!

SARSEF created the What Do You Wonder: A Community of Young Scientists virtual program in response to our southern Arizona students’ curiosity about the world around them and current events. Working alongside our young scientists (PreK-12th grade), they created research questions and determined data collection methods to answer their current questions.

Data was collected between April 10th and April 20th, 2020
for each of the research questions below.

Thank you to all of our Citizen Scientists who were a valuable part of the journey
by helping them to collect data.
