Establishing a Global Ground Truthing Network
Citizen Explorer Lab builds global participatory science tools for conservation and exploration. These tools have successfully empowered citizen scientists to identify potential archaeological sites in Egypt, and can be expanded to help understand patterns, species, ecosystems, people and cultures.
Citizen Science Projects
Funding for Participatory Science
We seek proposals from around the world that will engage learners and avocational researchers in citizen science activities to address real world problems, strengthen science literacy skills, and lead to actions in science and conservation.
