“Citizen Science: Everybody Counts,” a TEDx talk by Caren Cooper

Science is not just for professional scientists. From monitoring sea turtle activity to searching for intelligent life outside Earth, ordinary citizens can be involved and contribute to science.

Caren Cooper runs the “Sparrow Swap” citizen science project through the Biodiversity Research Lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. She is the author of “Citizen Science: How Ordinary People Are Changing the Face of Discovery.” She holds an Associate Professorship in Forestry & Environmental Resources at NC State, in the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program in Leadership in Public Science.

This talk was given at TEDxGreensboro on May 15, 2017.
