CHAIRS: Darlene Cavalier, Kenne Dibner, Raj Pandya

Given the potential that citizen science can play in shaping scientific understanding, it is time to take stock.  What do we know about how citizen science can support science learning? What are some effective strategies for designing citizen science projects to enhance participants' understanding of science and communities' capacity to use science to address their needs? What deserves further research?  How can citizen science offer experiences that support all learners? The National Academies is launching a new study “Designing Citizen Science to Support Science Learning” and we’d like to spend an hour collecting your input. Please attend this listening session to offer your ideas, insights, and suggestions.
