Citizen Science and Chemistry:
Opportunities to Engage
August 23, 2016, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET
American Chemical Society 252nd National Meeting and Exposition
Philadelphia Convention Center, ACS Press Center, Room 306
As professional scientists explore the universe, they find instances where more hands, eyes, and voices are needed to collect, analyze, and report data to advance understanding. Citizen scientists are answering the call in greater numbers, in chemistry and many other fields via public and private opportunities. Chemistry and other sciences that can be integrated within hobbies and formal or informal learning include: measuring the water quality in rivers and lakes, monitoring the daily course of a disease or exercise regimen, or weighing in via discussion groups on matters of science policy.
