Join Astrid and many others as they highlight the various citizen science projects occurring in San Diego. This will be the inaugural Citizen Science Expo for San Diego! Astrid will highlight the Urban Tides Initiative and Stormphoto citizen science projects which the Giddings lab has participated in and her results from analyzing the efficacy of these programs as part of her SIO MAS (you can read about Astrid’s work and the Urban Tides and Stormphoto initiatives). In addition to an exhibition in the community room featuring local citizen science projects, there will also be citizen science seminars, workshops, games, raffles, and more. This should be a great event to learn how you can get involved in a variety of different citizen science programs that allow you to learn from and help scientists throughout San Diego. Representatives from citizen science programs ranging from the medical field to oceanography to conservation and more will be represented!
The event takes place on 16 April 2016 from 10am-2pm at the La Jolla Public Library. Check out the flier here and find more information on presenters here.
