Girl Scouts and Citizen Science at the Atlanta Science Festival

SciStarter and the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta will be at the Atlanta Science Festival Expo on March 25th to help collect important cloud data for NASA. You are invited to join us!

Local Girl Scouts will show you how to help NASA ground-truth satellite data by identifying clouds, making observations, and adding your photos to the GLOBE.gov Observer database. If you can make it, just look for a Girl Scout (they’ll be in uniform) or stop by the SciStarter booth to get started.

We will also be taking “selfies for science” using the FaceTopo app to build a taxonomy of facial features AND teaching Atlanta residents how to find and research common beetles through the Backyard Bark Beetles project.

Science Cheerleader Christina will join us to engage more volunteers, talk about her career(s) and sign autographs at 12pm. Christina is a software engineer and former Atlanta Hawks cheerleader. Learn more about her in a recent interview!

We hope to see you in Atlanta!
