Ready for some research activities of your own? You've seen how Earthwatch teams of scientist and volunteers collect information on tropical forest ecosystems and recognized the importance of each organism that inhabits the forest. You've found out how scientists track the movements of wild cats in Mexico and how to spot caterpillars in Costa Rica. But the best part of science is doing it on your own.All you need to start with is curiosity and four of your five senses: your eyes, ears, nose, and handsSome of the best scientific questions come from careful observations of the world around us. Good record-keeping is also important so a notebook and pencil will be handy for keeping track of all that you see. Finally, have fun, but remember to be gentle with any organisms that you handle!
