Abstract: Citizen science programs use a unique design that is different from other communities of practice and traditional apprenticeships. I examine the structure of one water quality monitoring citizen science undergraduate program, the River Team. Drawing from situated learning theory, I use ethnographic methods to depict how both the structuring resources of the program as well as how one learner’s (Anna) individual practices quickly moved her from the periphery, into, and eventually leading the program.
