Driven to Discover is a National Science Foundation funded program that involves middle school students in asking scientific questions, designing and conducting their own research, and improving their understanding of science through participation in citizen science. Educators across MN will be trained to successfully lead these student experiences. You can learn more about this project at http://www.extension.umn.edu/environment/citizen-science/about/
