SCEN 117: CITIZEN SCIENCE

Image Picker for Section 0

​​

​Citizen Science engages diverse participants on local, regional, national, and global scales in the collection, interpretation, and use of scientific data on a particular scientific problem. Many examples empower the participants to engage in decision making about major issues such as: loss of biodiversity; water quality monitoring; monitoring effects of global warming; spread of invasive species; and identification of new pulsars, quasars, and stars with earth-like planets.  We will engage students in a variety of citizen science projects as well as have them choose at least one of their own. How can students play an important role to play in deciding, observing and contesting how science and technology are being developed and implemented for the good of humanity and the natural world? How do information, science, policy, and governance come together?
