I am co-convening an education session at AGU - please consider submitting an abstract. This is an exciting opportunity to showcase public participation in research at the AGU. Please note that first authors are allowed to submit a science abstract AND an education abstract, so if you are already submitting a science abstract this is a wonderful opportunity to also present your education and outreach efforts.

Submission deadline is August 4:

many thanks,
-Annette Schloss

Description: This session will focus on best practices and lessons learned from successful citizen science programs that promote greater understanding of geoscience through participation. Submissions that address planning, marketing, recruiting, retention, web site design, data entry, data quality control, coordination and management, communication, evaluation, and final reporting back to participants are encouraged. Abstracts are encouraged that represent the diversity of participants found in citizen science projects including K-12 school groups, informal science centers, individuals, communities, universities, and laboratories. We encourage abstracts that utilize mobile technologies to collect and report data.
