Investigating Ant Colony Searching: A Link To A Citizen Science Project


The Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET) has developed a lesson for teachers to use in science classes that build on the work of Dr. Deborah M. Gordon at Stanford University. The lesson is designed to engage students by providing opportunities for them to explore ants and their behavior, ask scientific questions, collect and analyze data and develop explanations about ant colonies and how ants work together. The lesson engages students in scientific inquiry and promotes curiosity about the natural world.
