Project Title:

Designing Citizen Science to Support Science Learning
PIN: DBASSE-BOSE-15-05        

Major Unit:

Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education

Sub Unit: Board on Science Education

RSO: Dibner, Kenne

Subject/Focus Area: Education

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee of experts will be appointed to conduct a study on how citizen science projects can be designed to better support science learning. The committee will identify and describe existing citizen science projects that seek to support science learning, consider research on science learning in both formal and informal settings, and develop a set of evidence-based principles to guide the design of citizen science projects that have science learning as a goal. The committee’s final report will discuss the potential of citizen science to support science learning, identify promising practices and programs that exemplify the promising practices, and lay out a research agenda that can fill gaps in the current understanding of how citizen science can support science learning and enhance science education.

Project Duration: 24 months
