Capitol College President’s Forum Hosts Renowned Speaker on Citizen Science
On Wednesday, April 13, the Capitol College President’s Forum will present Dr. Pamela L. Gay at 12:00 p.m. in the Avrum Gudelsky Auditorium.
Gay’s speech, titled Citizen Science: From the Cosmos to Cornflowers. The Story of how Ordinary People are enabling large-scale discovery, will discuss the nature of “citizen science” and detail how average people are making extraordinary discoveries every day.
“We live in a new age of technology driven science, with new instruments and new computers allowing us to collect more information – more images, more DNA profiles, more environmental sensor data – than ever before,” Gay says. “These new technologies make it possible to answer new questions and do new studies that couldn't even be imagined in the past.”
