Virtual Citizen Science Month Events and Support

Posted by on April 3rd, 2020 Posted in: Blog


NNLM is pleased to share the recording of the webinar, “Host or Facilitate Remote, Live-Streamed Citizen Science Events in a Pinch,” presented by our partners at SciStarter and Science Friday. You can find the recording, slides, and other resources for your online CitSciMonth event in this blog post. After viewing we are asking you to please complete this survey, so we can evaluate the webinar.

In addition, SciStarter is offering their services, Zoom account, and promotional support (all at no cost) to anyone who needs help creating or modifying a virtual Citizen Science Month event in April.

Here’s one idea to consider: Host an online Storytime or Book Club Reading using the new book, The Field Guide to Citizen Science (available online and in print). This new book is written by the experts at SciStarter, and we can arrange to have one of the authors or editors participate in your online event for an author Meet-and-Greet. Together, we can select one of the 50 citizen science projects featured in the book and do a real-time demonstration with the viewers to engage them in a project! If this is of interest to you, please email Caroline Nickerson atCarolineN@scistarter.org. You are also invited to join us for one of our weekly Citizen Science Month event planning calls this Thursday! Details on attending weekly Citizen Science Month planning calls are available.

Upcoming webinars: We’re offering a free webinar this Friday to help you learn more about digital accessibility in resources like PowerPoint. Register for the upcoming webinar and learn how to make electronic content shared accessible.

And…stay tuned to Science Friday on your local public radio station this Friday. Citizen Science Month and The Field Guide to Citizen Science are scheduled to be featured on air!
