As long time followers of this blog know, science is one of my passions. So it’s with great excitement that I would like to announce the launch of my new book called Be the Change: Saving the World with Citizen Science.
This book talks about some really cool stuff, where ordinary people like you and me get to do real, honest-to-goodness, help-answer-the-big-questions science. This is a world in which it is possible to go on a wildlife survey in a national park, install software on your computer to search for a cure for cancer, have your smartphone log the sound pollution in your city, transcribe ancient Greek scrolls, or sift through the dirt from a site where a mastodon died 11,000 years ago—even if you never finished high school.
Why am I into this stuff? Well, apart from the fact that it’s fun, I think that it is important in this high-tech era that people understand (and not fear!) science and technology. That’s why I write my other blog, Citizen Science Center.
If you like the book, it would be awesome if you would help me get the word out. Here’s how you can help:
