Think Science: Citizen Science

Mar 17, 2015

From harnessing the power of interconnected computers to mass bird and butterfly counts, Citizen Scientists work as individuals or in teams to provide researchers with the vast amounts of data needed for today's scientific studies. This panel on "Citizen Science" was recorded on February 20, 2015, and features Forrest Mims, who has served as editor of the Citizen Scientist JournalJason St. Sauver, interim director and resident "bird nerd" at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, and Carrie Merson, Education Specialist at the San Antonio River Authority. The discussion is moderated by TPR News Director Shelley Kofler.

“Think Science” is made possible by The University of Texas at San Antonio.
