Citizen science is public engagement in real research. Anyone can do citizen science by collecting data, conducting scientific analysis, and more for projects spanning different scientific disciplines, from health to astronomy to the environment.  SciStarter, a globally acclaimed, online citizen science hub where more than 3,000 projects, events, and tools — searchable by location, topic, age level, and more — is a great place for libraries of all types to go to find citizen science projects that are perfect for their communities.  But once up and running, how does a library keep interest high and participants engaged?

This webinar will focus on sustaining engagement and keeping the momentum going after introducing citizen science to a library and CBO, including follow-up program ideas and best practices for ongoing volunteer engagement in citizen science. No experience required to attend this webinar; we’ll give a brief introduction at the beginning to citizen science and past work with libraries and CBOs — before jumping into ideas for keeping the momentum going!

 Presenter: Caroline Nickerson, Program Manager at SciStarter.  Caroline is a Program Manager at SciStarter, where she manages the Citizen Science Month Program, SciStarter’s Corporate Volunteer Programs, and other programmatic and outreach efforts, including working with SciStarter’s Syndicated Blog Network, which encompasses the Science Connected, Discover Magazine, and SciStarter platforms. She is a Master of Public Policy graduate from American University with a focus on environmental and climate change policy.
