What is Citizen Science?

Citizen Science is the collection and analysis of data by members of the general public, typically as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists. You are not required to have a PhD! This is where you have the chance to get involved in a project with other interested community members and professional scientists.  Release your inner Einstein...

  • provide links to other Citizen Science activities and websites

  • when possible, participate in and encourage local and regional Citizen Science activities

  • facilitate communication and participation between Regional scientists and interested citizen scientists

  • seek and promote Regional Citizen Science projects via organised science events such as the Great Southern Great Science Symposium

Our actions for 2019:

  • develop Citizen Science content and links on the GSSC web page

  • identify our involvement in citizen science projects

  • promote and/or host a Citizen Science workshop with key scientists

  • target Citizen Science projects for the 2019 Great Southern Great Science Symposium

  • identify actions for the National Innovation and Science Agenda for Citizen Science in the Great Southern

Facilitate communication and learning between scientists and regional communities through engagement activities.
