I recently completed an assignment for the Science Into Action website, the online home of the Participatory Science Platform – Otago Pilot.
The brief was to write about the 13 projects the pilot has funded so far, and to create a new page on the website to showcase these projects.
As part of this, I learned all about citizen science projects happening across Otago and beyond. They offer plenty of ways for local folks to get involved in very real and tangible ways, which was exciting to highlight.
It will be interesting to follow the fortunes of these projects as they move forward towards the achievement of their goals.
