Webinar Recording: Citizen Science Month (and Beyond!) at Your Library
By Caroline Nickerson, Mar 11, 2020
Citizen science can build upon your existing STEM programs or introduce a whole new world of STEM engagement opportunities for library patrons. From tracking species migrations to measuring light pollution or searching online for new galaxies, citizen science invites patrons to engage in REAL research projects and contribute to scientific knowledge.
Discover how libraries are serving as community hubs for citizen science with support from the National Library of Medicine, SciStarter and Arizona State University’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society.
We invite you to watch this webinar recording and discover how you can access the many FREE resources to help introduce, facilitate, or promote citizen science in your library…yes, even THIS April! Learn more about citizen science at CitizenScienceMonth.org.
