How to mix citizen science with adventure on expeditions, and why we desperately need to.
Up until recently, what crowdfunding has really lacked is a website dedicated to science. So I was pretty excited to discover Experiment.com.
Last week I was privileged to be invited to speak at the Third Citizen Cyberscience Summit in London.
I'm lucky enough to be speaking on the first day, which is quite daunting considering that many of those in attendance are the people that inspired my interest in citizen science in the first place!
Science and adventure go hand in hand. In the same way that you don't need to fly to the other side of the world, climb mountains or row oceans to have an adventure. You don't need to lead an expedition to the depths of the unexplored amazon to do science.
The biggest success so far for my Year of Citizen Science.
