Citizen Science is a way that people of all ages and from all walks of life can make valuable contributions to research along with professional scientists. It enables research that would be impossible or impractical without the help of many people. Zooniverse is the largest and most popular online platform for citizen science, where participants can contribute to research in diverse fields of study across the sciences and humanities.
DoSER is pleased to partner with Dr. Grace Wolf-Chase as she creates intentional and sustainable pathways for faith-based and interfaith communities to engage with science.
The primary goal of this project is to create meaningful partnerships between academic researchers and faith communities by fostering new collaborations. Specifically, she is interested in working with community leaders to:
- Identify existing Zooniverse projects that could be prototyped for use in their programs (e.g., youth or adult education classes).
- Identify new research projects to co-develop using the Zooniverse Project Builder.
