People-powered science

History of science event exploring citizen science in the 19th and 21st centuries

Explore the humble beginnings of the citizen science movement.

From classifying the cosmos to tracking British bees, citizen science has captivated the imagination of the British public; online platforms such as Zooniverse have over 1 million participants. But, you might be surprised to hear that this isn't a new thing. Long before the internet put data at our fingertips, researchers capitalised on the power of many.

Join the Constructing Scientific Communities team for an informal discussion-based event. Learn how 19th-century models are offering ways of harnessing this huge popular interest, and how these models are helping to advance science.
