Making it Count: Citizen Science Activities in the Classroom Contribute to Our Understanding of Biodiversity
Speaker: Austin Mast
Abstract: Citizen Science is public engagement in scientific research. This engagement enables data collection at unprecedented scales to address pressing scientific and social challenges while offering new ways to boost science literacy. See how two citizen science projects—online transcription of label data from historical museum specimens and neighborhood observations of present day diversity—generate valuable data and provide complementary activities for addressing biodiversity topics in the classroom.
