"Citizen Scientists" are people who conduct volunteer scientific research without formal credentials. The data gathered and reported by citizen scientists is used in research by professional scientists and is often available to the public. Anyone with an interest can be a citizen scientist; the complexity ranges from making and reporting simple observations with the naked eye to using very high tech equipment costing thousands of dollars. Come see some of the fun and interesting citizen science projects that you can participate in! And be sure to see our general science program, too!
