Citizen Scientist – Connecting with the World Around You

(Airdate: February 2, 2021) As part of the Port Townsend Marine Science Center team, Betsy Carlson oversees the Citizen Science projects. Around the world folks of all ages engage in citizen science – participating in projects in which volunteers and scientists work together to investigate real world concerns, “crowdsourcing” that has the added bonus of giving volunteers a real sense of community. On this program, Missy Nielsen of Everybody Can discusses with Bets what it means to be a Citizen Scientist and the role of Citizen Science at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center.
