Event Navigation

Join us on March 28 at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum for a one-day symposium focused on exploring the intersection of citizen science and institutions of higher education.
Can citizen science improve higher education? Can higher education improve citizen science? What roles can community colleges, private colleges, land-grant universities, historically black colleges and universities, and other institutions of higher education play in introducing students to citizen science? How can local communities partner with students and faculty in higher education in carrying out citizen science for environmental justice and actionable solutions? How can science centers, museums and environmental educators partner with institutions of higher education for best practices in citizen science? How might K-12 teachers, government agencies and industry partner with institutions of higher education for innovations in citizen science? Explore these questions and many, many more.
This academic event is open to any citizen science practitioners, students, researchers, educators, organizers and participants. Take part to learn from other citizen science programs, share findings and discuss ideas while networking with a community of citizen science professionals. Attendees can look forward to flash talks, workshops, posters and a networking lunch.
This event, which includes snacks and lunch, requires registration and a small fee of $25 for faculty and $5 for anyone else (use the following discount code CS5). If you need a complete fee waiver, contact CitizenScienceCampus@ncsu.edu.
