‘Tis the Season for Science!

Thank you for all you do to inspire our next generation of confident, curious, and courageous stewards of this planet. From all of us at Science Action Club and the California Academy of Sciences, we wish you a happy holiday season and a joyful new year. 

Help Wanted: Online Training Design and Summer Camp Market Research 

SAC is hiring contractors to help support our next phase of expansion. We seek an eLearning production team to convert our Bug Safari blended learning training into an online-only course. We also need a contractor to conduct market research and provide business recommendations for our summer camp expansion effort. View the requests for proposals for more information about the projects and how to apply.

Contribute to the Christmas Bird Count 

Contribute to one the nation’s oldest citizen science projects: the Audubon Christmas Bird Count. Thousands of birders from all around the country will gather from December 14 through January 5 to identify and document birds they encounter. To participate, check out the official map and contact an organizer near you.
