Event description

Description

Designed by the California Academy of Sciences, Science Action Club is a nationwide STEM program for middle school youth in out-of-school time. Through games, projects, and hands-on activities, youth in SAC use citizen science to explore nature, connect with scientists, and design strategies to protect our planet.

We're going to meet at the library every Thursday from 9/28 to 12/21 for Cloud Quest. We ask that youth try their best to attend all 12 sessions. Cloud Quest explores the impact of clouds on weather and climate.

What is Citizen Science?
Citizen science is a global movement in which scientists and the general public collaborate to answer some of the most pressing questions about our planet. Many big scientific questions require more data than one single scientist, or even a team of scientists, could collect. In SAC, youth will collaborate with NASA and contribute to the GLOBE database of observations. Through citizen science, anyone can learn the process of science and
make valuable contributions.

What is GLOBE Observer?
GLOBE Observer is an international network of scientists and students working together to study how clouds affect Earth’s environment. By observing the sky from the ground and reporting what you see, citizen scientists like you can help NASA researchers track changes in sky and cloud conditions to support Earth science research. Clouds affect weather and climate by controlling the flow of energy through Earth’s atmosphere. Since clouds can change rapidly, scientists need frequent observations from citizen scientists to better understand cloud cover over Earth’s surface.

This program is available to you for free thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Millbrae Library. Please consider joining or donating to this wonderful all-volunteer nonprofit so we can keep offering quality programs like this for years to come.
