Join NASA’s Summer of Citizen Science Event on 30 September


NASA Summer of Citizen Science Shareable

You are invited to “attend” NASA’s virtual event series, “Summer of Citizen Science.” The series, which began in May, will continue through 30 September 2020. These live, 90-minute, events will be hosted by Sarah Kirn, and will occur every other Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. ET.

This event series is intended to promote the exchange of scientific and engagement practices that make citizen science projects effective. NASA civil servants, collaborators, grantees, contractors, and partners involved or interested in citizen science are encouraged to attend all sessions to build a more robust approach to designing and running these projects. If you are not part of this group, but are interested in the topics, you are more than welcome to join in. The  virtual doors are open to everyone.

This workshop series will:

  • provide you with opportunities to connect with others in the NASA citizen science practitioner network; share actionable insights and strategies to advance work towards NASA’s dual goals for citizen science: advancing scientific research and building understanding of the process of science; and celebrate the work and accomplishments of the NASA Citizen Science practitioner network.

Recordings of speakers and panelists will be available after the events have taken place; however, the Q & A sessions will not. The September schedule of events is as follows:

  • 02 September: Panel: New Technology and Citizen Science, with Dr. Carlos Siordia, CDC; Dr. Ted Smith, University of Louisville; Holli Kohl, NASA GLOBE Observer; and Dr. V, ed Chirayath, NASA Inventor and Scientist
  • 16 September: Panel: Is NASA citizen science helping the public understand the process of science? How do we know? with Dr. Tina Phillips, Cornell University; Dr. Martin Storksdieck, Oregon State University; Dr. Elizabeth MacDonald, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center
  • 30 September: Training: How to get started with citizen science at NASA
