Join trained citizen science facilitators to learn how you can get started with public engagement in real scientific research!
So many people love nature and learning about the world around them: they’re curious, concerned and they want to make a difference. The good news: all of these people of all ages can do real science, at any time, by becoming citizen scientists! Citizen scientists volunteer to collect or analyze data, moving science forward and helping researchers understand how things work — with all types of science, from astronomy to health to zoology.
SciStarter is the world’s largest citizen science community and an affiliate of Arizona State University. Join trained facilitators for an introduction to citizen science, demos of two real projects (Stall Catchers and ISeeChange) and ideas for how anyone can get started and make a difference.
The facilitators for this event were trained in a course presented by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Arizona State University, SciStarter & ASU Library.
