Welcome to the world of citizen science. It’s a growing movement that’s joining professional scientists with regular people around the world. Together, they’re expanding scientific knowledge and giving us all a better understanding of the world we live in.
This April, Western University’s masters in journalism class are exploring the emerging world of citizen science in a seven-part series. The class will investigate the basics of the citizen science movement, the important questions and concerns in the field and what lies ahead. Through interviews, videos, and audio, they’ll be providing in-depth coverage as well as new and insightful analysis of the movement.
