Theme of the Month Online Panel:
Broadening the Landscape of Citizen Science
March 8, 2022 at 2 p.m. (Central)

Citizen science is considered an exceptional mechanism for authentic STEM learning and evidence of the benefits of citizen science for all learners is growing. However, evidence also suggests that citizen science is only reaching a relatively narrow slice of the public, and calls are growing for making citizen science more inclusive as an effective and authentic means to engage the public in the scientific enterprise.

Join moderator Dr. Heather A. Fischer, panelists Dr. Trena Ferrell, Dr. Elena Sparrow, Blake McGhghy, and respondent Dr. Martin Storksdieck for an exciting conversation focused on engaging a broader audience in citizen science and exploring promising practices for broadening participation in various citizen science projects and more broadly in informal STEM education.
