Tuesday, January 14, 2020
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Facilitated by Paige Neumann​

Have you ever wanted to...Tag penguins? Explore the secret life of chimpanzees? Be the first person to see galaxies? Learn how to become involved in citizen and community science projects. We'll begin with an overview of what citizen science is and then explore different platforms for finding projects you can participate in, both online and in person. Then, we'll take a deep dive into Zooniverse, a free online platform for crowdsourced scientific research. Participants can choose from projects ranging from identifying species of animals to transcribing historical letters to hunting for star clusters and more!
