Citizen Science Summer Series Featured in Discover Magazine! On July 28, Discover Magazine published an article on the webinar series Summer Reading Meets Citizen Science, which aims to keep students and adults engaged with reading and research to prevent “summer slide” learning loss. The Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) and SciStarter have collaborated on this series of workshops, which will continue to take place throughout the month of August. Check out the article, “Online Science Talks For All Ages, Brought to You by Your Local Library“, for more details.
