OU Citizen Science Club

We’re happy to spread the word about OU’s Citizen Science Club.They are meeting this

What is citizen science?

Back in the old days science was learned about and done by amateurs as well as professionals.  Heck, Fermat was a lawyer and government official during the day and came up with Fermat’s Little Theorem, Fermat’s Last Theorem, etc. at night (like Batman!).

But it’s not just in the good old days!  It’s even easier with the Internet, crowd sourcing, smartphones, etc. for people to get involved with science reearch!  One example we told you about two years ago was FolditThis page has more good examples!

Or you could just go to the meeting!
