We take a tour of the world of citizen science in this new mini-series, Citizens Disrupt. In this episode Science: Disrupt contributor Linda Doyle explores contributory citizen science, where the data for scientific ventures is crowdsourced.
She speaks to:
- Dr Erinma Ochu, from the Univeristy of Salford, about her efforts to engage people in mathematics through botany.
- Dr Martin Jones, the Deputy Head of Microscopy Prototyping at the Crick Insititute, about the etch-a-cell initiative.
- Dr Pinja Haikka, a theoretical physicist and (at the time of recording) the head of outreach at ScienceatHome
- Steven Gray, CEO of Earthwatch (Europe & Middle East), on effecting change in corporates make policies in light of new climate change data.
