Biologist in Training (BiT)
Welcome to the Biologist-in-Training Program! This exciting program is designed to guide students through a fun, hands-on exploration of aquatic habitats.
The BiT activity booklet includes five fun, interactive activities that will help students gain the skills needed to be good biologists and discover why it’s important to care for our precious aquatic resources. Once students complete all five activities they are eligible to receive an official Biologist-in-Training certificate and patch or sticker!
