A beginner's guide to Citizen Science
You can help discover new planets. You can help create new proteins to prevent or treat disease. You can help track the changes in the ranges of plants and animals. You can discover the wildlife in your garden, on your street in a park, or in the city. Globally, there are now thousands of citizen science projects and many millions of participants. Locally, there are many projects that you can join, with or without experience. It doesn’t matter who you are, there is a citizen science project for you! Your participation can be valuable for the scientists and communities involved, and you can gain skills, meet new people, and learn new things along the way.
In this workshop you will be introduced to a variety of citizen science projects. Some projects will include outdoor activities, while others can be easily done indoors. Some projects won’t take long, while others are long-term. You’ll be shown how to find projects and a few of our favourites. Come along to learn how to build your own wildlife catalogue, for your home, for a park or for a school. Or help scientists identify animals in Africa from the comfort of your home. Come along to learn how to record and identify frog calls. Come along to learn how to identify galaxies and search for new planets. Come along and learn how to build proteins. Come along to become a citizen scientist!
