iNat is awesome but not designed for kids as users in mind. I am looking for suggestions on how to get my daughter involved (Under supervision, of course) so that she can get initiated. She is already an avid photographer and I think the general idea of an iNaturalist for kids could be really useful.
I’ve been thinking of ways I could tweek things - from creating a project under my account so that she can post her findings, while I am sure this could work for my use case, iNat was not designed with that use case in mind. Then again, maybe it’s an opportunity to create something vaguely inspired on iNat for kids? Maybe something already exist that would bridge that gap? Or maybe it’s okay to start young, and maybe in a couple years she can have her own account? Is there a minimum recommended age to use iNat? I think many sites use 13yo as a minimal age. It’s the old dilemma of having serious observations for science vs exposure to the natural world for (very) novices and/or young folks (More selfies?!), two worthwhile goals that sometime just can’t coexist super well… Open for ideas on how I could initiate my daughter so that she can document her own observations, on here or elsewhere.
