Announcing our July national service project: citizen science.
While families are at home this summer, there are meaningful and exciting ways for Girl Scout troops to contribute to science, get outside, and help scientists solve some of the big problems facing our planet. Especially now, with more people are at home due to COVID-19, citizen scientists have a unique opportunity to help by collecting data and reporting their findings.
We hope that your girls, troops, and councils will participate in two designated citizen science projects:
- Girls of all ages can participate in the Great Sunflower Project.
- Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors can choose between the Great Sunflower Project and the Globe at Night project.
You do not need any science training to do these projects, and they comply with social distancing guidelines.
