Register for our Panel on Broadening Participation in Citizen Science

Citizen science projects have demonstrated promise for engaging new audiences in the practice of science. Sometimes this is accomplished by engaging new audiences in existing investigations, sometimes by developing new investigations based on questions arising from communities typically underrepresented in science. This panel will showcase projects that have made an effort to engage those underrepresented communities in their work, highlighting promising strategies for others to implement.
