Crowd & The Cloud – Citizen Science Projects

By Internet Scout Report

Crowd & The Cloud
Supported by the National Science Foundation, the Crowd & the Cloud is a series of television programs, launched in April 2017, that highlight a variety of citizen science projects around the world. For educators and librarians, this project also offers a variety of resources that will appeal to those who want to incorporate citizen science into their classroom, library, or community center.

For example, under the Join a Project tab visitors will find the SciStarter Project Finder, which allows one to search for citizen science projects of interests by selecting the filters of Topics (e.g. Agriculture, Computers & Technology, Nature & Outdoors, Social Science), Area (e.g. Can Be Done Outdoors, Use a Smartphone or Tablet App), Activity (e.g. At Home, At School, on a Hike), and Age Group (ranging form Elementary School to Seniors).

Visitors can also search for projects by keyword or location. In addition, visitors may want to check out the CitSci Calendar, which includes a timeline of the history of citizen science. Finally, on the site’s homepage one will find a number of short documentary clips that may be incorporated into science classrooms.
