MOBILE ENVIRONMENTAL CITIZEN SCIENCE AT MICHIGAN TECH

Funded by a grant from the Nation Science Foundation, the MTU Citizen Science Project aims to create an avenue in which everyday citizens and professional researches alike can share and process information on a variety of topics. Currently we are working this summer (2014) to both design and implement the tools that will allow everyone to participate. This project is supported through the National Science Foundation's Cyberinfrastructure Training, Education, Advancement, and Mentoring for Our 21st Century Workforce (CI-TEAM) Program, Award # OCI- 1135523
