Anthony Briggs hates pigeons, and for good reason. Thanks to his funny way of walking and his leg braces, his classmate TJ started calling him “Pidge,” a nickname he’d love to dump. So when the Science Squad recruits students for a project to solve why pigeons come in so many different colors, Anthony is anything but interested . . . until he learns that the reward is spending a night at the Natural History Museum. He signs up in a flash, and ends up paired with TJ. Anthony is stuck listening to TJ’s insults and doing two people's work. Can he stick it out to win the museum overnight? Or will the birds get the best of him again?

Welcome to the Science Squad, a citizen science organization for curious kids who love nature and science! Follow along as Squad members journal their efforts to make a difference in the world around them.
