What Did We Find Living on our Campus? Never Home Alone @ NC State
Ever wondered what critters might be sharing your room with you? Our current Wolfpack Citizen Science Challenge, Never Home Alone @ NCSU, asks students on and near campus to find and photograph insects and other life that they encounter in their home, dorm or apartment. Participating students are playing a part in the first scientific study to comprehensively examine the biodiversity of indoor spaces on a college campus. Never Home Alone @ NCSU is part of a larger worldwide project to study the species in homes by the Dunn Lab at NC State. Challenge winners will be announced at this event, with prizes to the residence hall with the most participation, the participants with the most observations, and participants who observe the most species. Free and open to the public; please register.
