What is Citizen Science?
Citizen Science is scientific research which can be carried out by people outside of the professional scientific community, often though partnerships with established members of academia.

What kind of projects can I get involved with?
There are hundreds of different Citizen Science projects out there now, although most of the ones we’ll be discussing are posted here.
