Becoming a citizen scientist is easier than ever! Several citizen science projects now have smartphone apps that allow you to make quick and easy observations that are incredibly valuable to scientists. In this outdoor program, you will learn how to turn your smartphone (iPhone or Android) into a tool that allows you to participate in science with just a few quick taps on your screen and a click of your phone's camera shutter button. Bring your smartphone and prepare for a leisurely walk outside. For more information or to register please contact Chris Goforth at 919.707.8882 or chris.goforth@naturalsciences.org.
