Merchantville resident and HMHS Environmental Sciences teacher, Ron Smith, will discuss his new books, Adventures in Community Science, on Saturday, May 13th at 6:30 p.m. at Inkwood Books, 106 Kings Highway East, Haddonfield NJ. If you or your kids were inspired by Earth Day, or are interested in nature, this is the perfect event for you! Adventures in Community Science allows young readers and educators to explore various community science projects through natural history, journal entries, and sample data sets.
These studies and surveys will inspire readers to engage the natural world through hands-on exploration. Projects include: Horseshoe Crab Rescue, Night Lights (Firefly Activity), Finding Frogs, Mystery Mussel, Lanternflies Have Landed, The Great Shorebird Migration and SOS—Save Our Spiders. Science practice and education have become increasingly important in our world, and this how-to guide will have kids, their families, teachers, students, and community science groups examining the natural world around them while collecting meaningful data, learning science by practicing science, and helping to protect species and ecosystems in their backyards, in their communities, and throughout the world.
