Citizen Science Activities

Posted in: #Public/K-12 List


Please consider responding to the message below. It will impact decisions made regarding support for citizen science activities in 2021. The goal is to have at least 100 libraries (of all types – academic, public, school, health sciences) state that they have interest in moving forward with more Citizen Science programs in a box/kits moving forward in 2021.
 
——-
With support from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Arizona State University and SciStarter have spent the past 2+ years developing and field testing resources for libraries,to introduce citizen science and field-testing [SciStarter.org/library-kits]kits to their communities. Within the STEM realm, citizen science enables people from all walks of life to actively contribute to real scientific research. 
 
Our pilot project has expanded throughout the state of AZ, thanks to mini grants offered by Arizona State Library, Archives, and Public Records and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) and we are eager to get a sense of the levels of interest and commitment from more libraries across the country!
  
Please complete the brief survey by March 20, 2020: https://forms.gle/3f9qsEMjM4E6NwKE9
 
We appreciate your interest and commitment to supporting public engagement in science and hope that we can work together in the near future!
 
Sincerely,
The ASU-SciStarter team
