    Ohio Energy Project

    Relevant, informative, fun — that's energy education from the Ohio Energy Project. Created by teachers for teachers, OEP has been energizing classrooms with hands-on, interactive learning tools and programs since 1984. Are you a little uncomfortable teaching electricity, thermal energy, circuits, light, sound, or do you lack materials to teach about energy? Attend one of many Ohio Energy Project professional development workshops to help with all of those things! Check it out and find grade specific workshops on their website.

    Citizen science is a way for everyone to contribute in a meaningful way to "professional scientists." It's a great way for students to realize they can make a difference and contribute to the scientific community!

    Midwest Invasive Species Information Network

    The Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN) is a regional data aggregation effort to develop and provide an early detection and rapid response (EDRR) resource for invasive species in the Midwest region of the United States.This effort is led by researchers with the Michigan State University Department of Entomology Laboratory for Applied Spatial Ecology and Technical Services in conjunction with a growing consortium of supporting partners.

    The goal of this regional resource is to assist both experts and citizen scientists in the detection and identification of invasive species. Data collected will allow for the development and implementation of effective control strategies in the region. There is even an app you can use with tablets or smartphones so you can easily snap photos and get precise locations of the invasive species you see. Get your classroom involved by checking out their website.
