Full Session Description (as long as you would like): The educational goal is to introduce citizen science so that all people may participate in scientific research on a global scale. When real-world research and technology can be connected outside the classroom learning becomes more meaningful. Attendees will be introduced to a variety of NASA citizen science apps which include, Air Quality Citizen Science, Sun spotter, GLOBE, Exoplanet Explorers, and several more. Attendees will be able to download these apps to be used immediately. Educators can enhance their curriculum by collecting real-world scientific data and contributing to citizen science. The evidence for success will be when attendees download these apps so students and community members may contribute to citizen science research.
