AAA Science looks for citizen. Active, shared and participatory knowledge
Can science involve citizens? Can citizens from all over the world participate in new scientific discoveries?
This is the case in Citizen Science projects involving volunteers – of different countries and age – through web platforms and events in schools, parks and museums – to observe and collect environmental data – such as sighting animals rather than classifying astronomical images.
Does this collaboration really bring a benefit to scientific research?
Let’s talk about Citizen Science with:
