Citizen Science Explorers Program 

 

The Citizen Science Explorer Program is a chance to learn about neat ways you can participate in Urban Science Projects. The program is part of Science Hack Day NYC, a weekend of hacking science for good.

 

The Citizen Science Explorers Program runs Saturday May 31st from 2pm-6pm and Sunday June 1st from 12pm-4pm, at NYU's NYU MAGNET (BxmC, the Brooklyn eXperimental Media Center) located at 2 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn on the 8th Floor.

 

Science Hack Day NYC is a free event but registration is mandatory to access MAGNET. Registration on Eventbrite

 

The Citizen Science Explorers Program consists of:

 

1)  Short Talks: These are a series of TED-like talks by leading researchers and scientists. Each talk will provide the scientific context of the citizen science activities. They will provide an overview of the research area and why it is interesting. These will also be posted online for convenient viewing. The detailed list can be viewed here.

 

2) Pop-up workshops: These provide an opportunity for people to experience what it is like to be a "Citizen Scientists" in a small yet effective way. Participants would be assisting in real projects and assist in collecting valuable data necessary for the project. The detailed list can be viewed here.

 

3) Science Kits: These kits complement the Pop-up Workshops by explaining exactly how to participate in the data collecting activities. For some activities, there will only be a limited number of kits available. Some will require purchase of low-cost materials. More information here.
