Journal Cover The Science Teacher

January 2019

CITIZEN SCIENCE Currently, the engagement of non-professionals in scientific investigations—citizen science—is experiencing a golden age. The explosion of the Internet and social media has increased opportunities for the public to engage in collaborative scientific research, while low cost sensors facilitate the collection of reliable data. Citizen scientists can now utilize free or inexpensive smartphone apps like eBird Mobile, iNaturalist, NASA’s Meteor Counter, Project Noah, NoiseTube, and countless others. Citizen scientists monitor backyard birds, track climate change, analyze signals from space, survey invasive species, and even research what makes babies laugh.
