Citizen science workshop for students

citizen science imageAll UChicago students are invited to attend an introductory citizen science workshop on Thursday, April 27 from 12-2 p.m. led by Dr. Laura Trouille of Adler Planetarium and Zooniverse.

Citizen science—engaging the public in research—has proved a creative and capable response to the increasing size of scientific datasets, particularly when coupled with machine learning algorithms and sophisticated task allocation and retirement rules.

During the first hour of the workshop, pizza will be served, and Dr. Trouille will deliver a lecture about citizen science.

In the second hour, snacks will be served, and attendees can start exploring citizen science projects on Zooniverse or start building their own project with the easy to use project builder.

For more information about the workshop, visit the event page, or e-mail the Zar Symposium Committee (zarsymposium@lib.uchicago.edu).

Register for the workshop.
