Citizen scientists, members of the public who voluntarily contribute to scientific research projects, have informed research on protein-folding, discovered new celestial bodies, and tracked wildlife after last year?s Gulf oil spill. In this discussion, the panelists share their experiences with citizen science initiatives and consider what factors contribute to a successful collaboration with interested amateurs. How have scientists created the necessary tools and infrastructure to gather data or verify analyses carried out by large numbers of citizen scientists? How do research funders and the scientific community view these projects? What does the future hold for citizen science? Panelists: David W. Hogg is an astronomer and physicist at New York University. One of the spin-offs of his research in observational cosmology, and in engineering systems that can manage and analyze enormous data sets, is Astrometry.net, a Web-based service that automatically calibrates amateur images of the sky for use in scientific investigations. Jane Hunter is a Professorial Research Fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE) at the University of Queensland and the Director of the eResearch Lab where she leads a team developing software services for managing and analyzing scientific and research data. Rick Bonney is Director of Program Development and Evaluation at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology and a co-founder of the Lab?s citizen science program. Founder and director of www.citizenscience.org, he studies the impacts of public engagement in science.

Follow our Woodland Park Zoo ZooCorps and Citizen Scientist Volunteers as they explore Carkeek Park in Seattle and show you some of the ways we monitor for amphibians in our wetlands. Woodland Park Zoo, Northwest Trek, and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium partnered with Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) to train volunteers in surveying for amphibian egg masses in local ponds and wetlands for the third year. Participants are trained in the WDFW-approved protocol as well as in identification of the egg masses of eight different amphibian species. Volunteers have access to monitoring tools, including hip waders, digital cameras, and GPS units, and are monitoring for the presence of egg masses once a month from February through August in a local pond or wetland. Data sheets with information on locations of sightings are sent to biologists at WDFW, who use the information to monitor the presence of these species at sites across western Washington.

Students from Cafeteria Culture’s COMMUNITY ARTS+MEDIA FOR TRASH FREE WATERS program are taking the lead in their Red Hook, Brooklyn neighborhood to reduce single-use plastic litter at the source! They are collecting both litter and litter data, then using their data to educate neighbors and to inform government and policy makers. PS15 Patrick F Daly School students are learning critical skills needed to advocate for informed, data-driven policy. By identifying the amounts and types of litter collected in their school neighborhood, as well as at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge (Gateway National Park), these young citizen scientists are contributing to citywide scientific research. They compare their 2 sets of litter data to make the connection between or local street litter and deadly plastic marine litter. Plastic marine litter is a local and global plight, adding to a multitude of Climate Stressors that threaten marine wildlife, the health of our oceans and public health - via microplastics, tiny bits of plastics that entering our food web at alarming rates. EIGHT MILLION TONS OF PLASTICS LEAK INTO THE OCEAN ANNUALLY, which is equivalent to one truckload of trash being dumped in our oceans per minute. Recent studies estimate that by the year 2050 there will be more plastic—by weight—than fish in the ocean. Plastic marine pollution is not just a problem in some remote Pacific islandNew York City generates endless amounts of single-use plastic litter. On rainy days, litter flows from neighborhood streets, though our sewers, and out to our rivers bays and oceans. #RefusePlastic and #SaveACritter Watch this video. Find out what makes Cafeteria Culture's environmental education programs truly unique.

With the social platforms and technologies of the 21st century, more and more individuals are able to participate in scientific research and activities. In ocean conservation, these “Citizen Scientists”, including divers and snorkelers, can help to monitor the health of our oceans. Image credits: Universal Studios Licensing LLC, Safecast, Foldit, Jacques Cousteau, Ocean Surface Temperature, Overfishing Trawler, Hypoxic Dead Zone, Clouds over Atlantic, Ham Tin Wan, OCTO23 Technologies, Viccisitudes population by Decaires Jason Taylor, Reef Check. Jordan began his career with Lockheed Martin Space Systems as an algorithms engineer on a distributed space robotics platform. Shortly after, he created OCTO23 Technologies, an invention firm based in San Francisco and Hong Kong focusing on clean energy and ocean conservation technologies. Since 2008, OCTO23 has developed multiple spin-off technologies and companies such as a modular non-turbine wind energy generator and the B-Squares modular electronic platform, which was one of Kickstarter's top 10 funded projects in 2012. Currently Jordan is developing OCTOtalk, a technology for underwater wireless communication and Citizen Science platform for crowdsourced ocean monitoring. Jordan received his B.S. at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.S. at Stanford University, both in the field of Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering with a focus on Robotics.

August 21, 2017 will be a very special day. For the first time in 100 years, a total solar eclipse will cross the United States. It’s not only an opportunity for millions of people to appreciate this rare astronomical event, but a chance for scientists to gain a better understanding of how the sun’s atmosphere behaves. Enter the Eclipse Megamovie Project. Led by the University of California at Berkeley, scientists from multiple universities are turning to citizen scientists for help gathering images of the sun and its atmosphere, the corona. Volunteers armed with standard photography equipment—a camera, telephoto lens, and tripod—will capture photos of the eclipse as the moon’s shadow passes over their part of the country. Once this huge dataset is collected, it’s Google’s turn. We’ll use our technology to algorithmically align and process the images submitted by citizen scientists to create a continuous view of the eclipse: the Eclipse Megamovie. In addition to the movie, the full dataset of images will be made available to the public and the scientific community. Time will only tell what insights and projects may come from this rich collection. If you’ll be on the path of totality and plan on taking pictures, the project needs your help. Head to https://eclipsemega.movie/ to learn more about how to join and take the best eclipse photographs possible.
