Science Action Club features three science and nature units (Bugs, Birds and Clouds) that spark curiosity and wonder, build scientific skills, and help youth develop STEM identities
Each unit includes:
One guidebook with detailed plans for 12 nature investigations and citizen science experiences.
One teaching kit with high quality science tools and supplies for 20 youth.
One interactive online training.
One half-day face-to-face workshop.
Digital access to the SAC Educator Portal.
