Citizen Science TV Series Preview and Discussion

Citizen Science TV Series Preview and Discussion

A public television series premiering in early April, THE CROWD & THE CLOUD, takes viewers on a global tour of citizen science projects and people on the front lines of this disruptive transformation of how science is done. The series, hosted by CU Boulder’s Waleed Abdalati, shows how citizen scientists are helping professional scientists advance knowledge in public health, environmental science, wildlife conservation and more. And it deals with emerging challenges, too, such as questions about data quality and privacy. Please join Abdalati, producer Geoff Haines-Stiles (COSMOS) and executive producer Erna Akuginow, and a panel of citizen science leaders from across Colorado for a sneak peek at the series March 21, 6:30 p.m., in Old Main. Registration requested. Families welcome. Non-alcoholic refreshments will follow, in the CIRES Atrium. This free event is supported by the office of the CU Boulder Research and Innovation Office. Missed the presentation, watch it here
