MIT Museum’s Citizen Science Fair, Feb. 24

The MIT Museum will hold its Citizen Science Fair on February 24, 1-4PM, during which students and adults can meet with researchers from many local organizations to learn how they can participate in “citizen science” research projects.   This form of crowd-sourced science enlists the public’s participation in data collection, analysis, and reporting to potentially lead to discoveries that would be nearly impossible to achieve alone.  Admission to this event is included in the price of admission to the museum.  Participating organizations include Arnold ArboretumbloomWatchBoston Harbor IslandsCity Nature ChallengeCoCoRaHSExoplanet ExplorersEyeWireFathomISeeChange, and Mass Audubon Society.
