Crowdsourcing for Science: Using Social Media to do Real Research
Stephanie Zimmerman, M.L.I.S., Seattle University Law School
Beyond simple memes and cat photos, social media is now being used to leverage average citizens to help scientists find cures for disease, track climate change, locate planets, and transcribe the history of written knowledge. At the March Queen Anne Science Café, join Seattle University’s Stephanie Zimmerman, M.L.I.S., to explore how social media tools are pushing research beyond its current limitations and empowering you to make your own mark on scientific research.
