Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Project Squirrel may not be as visually appealing as the more popular citizen science site, Project Noah, but it does provide kids with opportunities that move beyond simply counting and locating squirrels. Kids can follow detailed instructions for setting up data gathering stations to observe squirrel behavior in food gathering. Site reports on data from thousands of users presents interesting conclusions. It would be nice if kids could see the raw data from all users and watch how it grows in real time. This would give kids the opportunity to form their own conclusions from the data.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
