Citizen Science Resources

I plan to update this post with information and resources for citizen science, so If you have interest in this topic, keep checking back to see if there are any updates, or let me know about a resource so that I can add it to this post.

If you would like to be a Citizen Scientist and participate in our bird watching project, you can register at http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ and submit your observations.  We have a birding hotspot here at Middletown High and you can watch birds at the pond and submit your observations to the Middletown High School Pond birding hotspot:  http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L2346801   Check it out!

Life thrived on young Earth: scientists discover 3.7-billion-year-old fossils: Remarkable find by team of Australian researchers points to earliest existence of diverse life on Earth

Life thrived on young Earth: scientists discover 3.7-billion-year-old fossils: Remarkable find by team of Australian researchers points to earliest existence of diverse life on Earth: A team of Australian researchers has uncovered the world's oldest fossils in a remote area of Greenland, capturing the earliest history of the planet and demonstrating that life on Earth emerged rapidly in the planet's early years. The team discovered 3.7-billion-year-old stromatolite fossils in the world's oldest sedimentary rocks, in the Isua Greenstone Belt along the edge of Greenland's icecap.

Cracking the coldest case: How Lucy, the most famous human ancestor, died

Cracking the coldest case: How Lucy, the most famous human ancestor, died: Lucy, the most famous fossil of a human ancestor, probably died after falling from a tree, according to a new study. Researchers have found that the injury Lucy sustained was consistent with a four-part proximal humerus fracture, caused by a fall from considerable height when the conscious victim stretched out an arm in an attempt to break the fall.
