Citizen Science: It's About Crowdsourcing

Are you using Citizen Science Projects in your youth programing? If not, perhaps its time to consider adding them.

Scientists from the Iowa State University will focus on the steps in engaging youth and showcasing opportunities for citizen science that span the continuum of science process and disciplines. The conversation will focus on why youth should be involved, how to get them involved, and how youth benefit. Scientists explain how they engage youth in their work and discuss how to provide opportunities for youth in applied science fields and the various practical methods they are piloting to expand the citizen science reach for youth.

Presenters will offer tips for what to look for in a good citizen science project and exemplary programs such as Zooniverse and Adopt a Pixel.
